de Eilanden Maldives of Voormuur vanIndien met der slever tussen-gelegen Zeen

Interesting early map of the Maldives, Ceylon and parts of Malaysia and Sumatra, illustrating the travels of Diego Lopez de Sequeira.

In the early 18th Century, Vander Aa reproduced a number of rare manuscript and printed accounts of 16th Century Travel to America and included marvelous decorative maps, which were typically based upon contemporary cartographic information. Many of the earliest voyages of exploration which are impossibly rare to find in the original editions can be found in Vander Aa's works, which are now becoming increasing rare. This example is in an attractive full wash color.

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.
