    Illustration to the atlas: Uitbeeldinghe der Heerlijkheit Friesland zoo in't algemeen als in haare 30 bijzondere Grietenijen door Dr.B. Schotanus â Sterringa.
    The first edition was produced by Bernard Schotanus in 1698 after he received an order from the Gedeputeerde Staten for a new mapping out of the Grietenijen. This first edition was published in 125 copies only. The rapid topographical changes in Frisia and the small number of printed copies made a new edition necessary just 20 years later. After the death of Schotanus in 1704, François Halma edited and published this 1718 edition in Leeuwarden. He revised the copperplates with information up to date and added the seven historical maps of the Netherlands from Menso Alting, plus a historical overview map of Frisia by Schotanus. The Halma atlas was later re-issued by R & J Ottens. (R. W. Shirley).
