About The First Atlases

The first atlas ever was published in Antwerp in 1570, 450 years ago this year. To celebrate this, PostNL will be issuing the stamp sheet The first atlaseson 23 March 2020. The six stamps on the sheet are dedicated to maps from six atlases that were published in the Netherlands in the 16th and 17th Century. The publishers of the six maps are depicted next to the maps. The stamps are marked ‘Internationaal 1', the denomination for items up to 20g in weight destined for delivery outside of the Netherlands. The stamp sheet was designed by Studio Maud van Rossum from Amsterdam.
