The descriptive table of plates, in Latin and Dutch, pages -, is signed: Ludolph Smids, M.D., Groningensis.
"Since almost three-fourths of the plates bear the 'cum privilegio' it seems likely that the work was issued before the expiration of the privilege in 1698, rather than afterwards."--List of geographical atlases in the Library of Congress.
