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. A lovely map of Germany, stretching from northern France to Poland, and southwards to northern Italy and Croatia.

Size: 245 335 mm. Copperplate engraving with original outline colour and later hand colour. Fair condition. some creasing and minor discolouration, and repairs to the central fold.
