A census of cartographic chronograms began in 1983, with a single entry. The few
people interested in such an obscure back-water in the history of
cartography may like to know that the total has now reached 32.

That is because two further examples (from 1610 and 1625) were brought to my attention,
by Francis Herbert and Ashley Baynton-Williams respectively.

No doubt many more await recognition but these were the first additions for nine years.
I would love to hear of others.
