The Atlas Van der Hagen from the National Library of the Netherlands (KB) is a so-called composite atlas. This means that the term ‘atlas’ should not be interpreted in the modern sense of the word, as a ‘book of maps’, but taken in the wider sense: a collection of maps and topographical pictures, with additional portraits, pictures of animals and plants, mythological scenes, etc.

It is not exactly known who composed this atlas, but recent research regards the Amsterdam merchant and map collector Dirk van der Hagen as its compositor. Van der Hagen had brought together a considerable collection of drawings and prints and it seems that he choose the most beautiful ones to be colored by hand by the famous artist Dirk Jansz van Santen.

The atlas consists of four volumes bound in parchment. These contain 446 maps and prints, in various formats, beautifully colored and decorated with gold: maps of Joan Blaeu and his father Willem Jansz Blaeu, Nicolaas Visscher II, Frederik de Wit and Jan Janssonius, and prints by Romeyn de Hooghe and others, all dating from the period up to 1689. This leads to the assumption that the atlas was composed around 1690. It has been held by the Koninklijke Bibliotheek since 1887, originating from the bequest of P.J.B.C. Robidé van der Aa.

In July 2015 the KB has donated all 446 images from this atlas into this category, from the source using the GLAMWiki toolset
