Canada ou Nouvelle France Suivant les Nouvelles Observations

Decorative example of Vander Aa's map of Canada and the Great Lakes.

Nice example, with the picture frame border, which appeared in Vander Aa's Nouvelle Theatre Du Monde, published in 1713.

The map extends south to the Chesapeake and west to the Plains. It is centered on the Great Lakes Region and Upper Mississippi, with a fascinating theory on the sources of the Mississippi and an extension of the Missouri to the Pays des Gnaclitares, with a portage to a river in the region of the Pays des Moozemlek which undoubtedly extended to the Pacific.

Many early Indian tribes and several forts shown in the Great Lakes and Mississippi Valley. Long note concerning Lahontan's explorations in the west. Fabulous contemporary projection of the Great Lakes. First edition, based upon De L'Isle's map of 1703. A must for Canada and Great Lakes collectors.

Pieter van der Aa (1659-1733) was a Dutch mapmaker and publisher who printed pirated editions of foreign bestsellers and illustrated books, but is best known for his voluminous output of maps and atlases. Van der Aa was born to a German stonecutter from Holstein. Interestingly, all three van der Aa sons came to be involved in the printing business. Hildebrand was a copper engraver and Boudewyn was a printer.
