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. This is a map of the historic northern region of Picardy, the region to the north of Paris up to the borders of Flanders.

Size: 245 x 340 mm. Copperplate engraving with original outline colour and later hand colour. Fair condition. Some staining and minor repairs and discolouration to the central fold.
