Decorative example of Vander Aa's map of the northern part of European Russia.
Nice example, with the picture frame border, which appeared in Vander Aa's Nouvelle Theatre Du Monde, published in 1713.
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.
