Pieter und David Mortier were booksellers in Paris and have published a wide range of geographical works. After Pieter's death, his widow continued the business until their son Cornelius took over. Cornelius started a partnership with his brother-in-law Johannes Covens and established the famous publishing house Covens and Mortier in Amsterdam. They have re-issued Atlases of Sanson, de l'Isle, Visscher and de Wit.
