AA, Pieter van der
La Moscovie Septentrionale,
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 informative and interesting map covers the area to the north of the Russian capital, featuring the White Sea and the Arctic port of Archangel.
