  • Date Printed: 1713
  • Cartographer: Aa, Pieter van der
  • Size (in): 11 x 8

    Very attractive framed copper-engraved antique map by Pieter van der Aa of Asia, Africa, Madagascar Java, Saudi Arabia, Philippines, western Australia, and much more. Matted and framed measures 17" x 13". Map itself, ca. 1713 within an elaborate and decorative printed border. Based on the voyage of Nuno de Cunha. This beautiful old map with a fine title cartouche covers the Mediterranean Sea, the Red Sea, Persian Gulf, Arabian Sea, Gulf of Bengal, and the South China Sea. Pieter van der Aa (1659 - 1733) was a Dutch publisher working in Leiden during the early eighteenth century. He is best known for publishing maps and atlases, though he also printed pirated editions of foreign bestsellers and illustrated volumes. Van de AA's use of stock mock-frame borders is a characteristic for which he is well known. The map shows evidence of two plate marks, one for the mock-frame and the second interior platemark for the smaller map which was printed inside the mock-frame. From "Le nouveau theatre du monde. ou La geographie royale, compose´e de nouvelles cartes tres-exactes", published from Leiden in 1713.
