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 charming and attractive map of The Netherlands shows in great detail, all the physical features, towns and cities of the various provinces. The wonderful title cartouche highlights the regional coats of arms.

Size: 245 x 335 mm. Copperplate engraving with original outline colour and later hand colour. Good condition. Some age toning.
