AA, Pieter van der
Carte des Comtez de Hainaut de Namur et de Cambresis.
Suivant les Nouvelles Observations de Messrs de L'Academie Royale des Sciences etc...
Pieter van der AA (1659-1733) was from a family of booksellers and publishers in Leiden, who flourished during the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries. His work was well executed and highly regarded by his contemporaries. The maps themselves are easily recognised and distinguished by their attractive title cartouches, and for the precise cartographic detail they contain. The map covers the area to the south of Brussels, including Mons, Chambrai, Charlemont and Namur.
