La Chine, Suivant les Nouvelles Observations . . .

Finely colored example of this early map of China and Korea, which appeared in Vander Aa's Nouveau Theatre du Monde.

The map reaches from the Royaume de Coree (Korea) in the east to Siam in the south, showing the islands of Formosa and Hainan.

Includes many cities, rivers, and ports named, and with the Great Wall of China at the northern boundary ("Muraille de la Chine").

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.
