Gerard Valk and his son Leonard were dutch engravers, globe makers and publishers in Amsterdam at end of the 17th century. The Valck family had a close relation to the Schenk family, since Pieter Schenk married Valk's sister in 1687.

Pieter Schenk, a Dutch engraver and publisher, was born 1655 in Elberfeld, Germany. He settled to Amsterdam and became a scholar of Gerhard Valk. He died in 1718.

The Valck and Schenk families where active as print sellers, publishers and printers of maps, atlases and architectural drawings as well globes. They reissued several maps of Janssonius' Atlas Novus from 1683 to 94 and published an Atlas titled Nova totius Geographia in 1702. Their Atlas Anglois was published in London by Mortier.
