Pieter Schenk

Pieter Schenk the Elder (1660-1711) was a Dutch printer and engraver who moved to Amsterdam in 1675. Some twenty years later, he managed to acquire map plates from the estate of mapmaker Johannes Janssonius. Using these as templates, Schenk began specializing in the engraving and printing of maps and prints.

During his most productive period, Schenk worked in multiple languages and published both in Amsterdam and Leipzig. He also supplied his materials to the English market through dealers in London. Upon his death in 1711, the business was split between Schenk’s three sons. While Peter the Younger continued the business in Leipzig, Leonard and Jan ran the Amsterdam outfit.
