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 charming smaller map of Portugal, diplaying her physical features, cities and towns and provinces wonderfully well.

Size 245 x 330 mm. Copperplate engraving with original outline colour and later hand colour. Good condition. Some age toning and slight discolouration to the central fold.
