AA, Pieter van der
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. This is the attractive map of the north eastern Dutch province of Groningen, which borders the German state of Niedersachsen. The famous explorer Abel Tasman was a native of this province.
