Jodocus Hondius (c. 1563 - 1612), sometimes called "Jodocus Hondius the Elder" to distinguish him from his son, was a Flemish / Dutch engraver and cartographer, and is one of many contributors to the Gutie´rrez collection. He is best known for his early maps of the New World and Europe, for re-establishing the reputation of the work of Gerard Mercator, and for his portraits of Francis Drake. He helped establish Amsterdam as the center of cartography in Europe in the 17th century.
