= Phillips 601. Koeman IV, Ren 3: "This edition with text in Dutch was published by R. and I. Ottens after a careful correction of the original plates obtained from Louis Renard. The Ottens Firm had previously published a French version of the atlas (1739) without altering the plates. In this edition with Dutch text the name of Louis Renard was effaced from the plates and replaced by the names of Reinier and Iosua Ottens. Apart from that, nearly all the plates were corrected by adding place names, altering coast lines, shoals and soundings." Six maps are new in this edition: the world map, 2 maps with the hemispheres, the famous world map with isogones by Edmund Halley, a map with the European postal communications and the "Nieuwe Paskaart van Hitland met de daar Omliggende Eylanden".
