Andreas Lambert

Back to people overview

Lambert was a well-known publisher from Cologne. Together with a group of contemporaries including Bertram Buchholtz and Gottfried von Kempen, Lambert helped to make Cologne one of the great map centres of Europe in the late 16th Century. Their atlases had a profound effect on the development of a map-reading public. In 1596, Lambert produced a beautiful world map.
