Rare map of central and western Mexico, published by Vander Aa.

Mexico City is located on the banks of a large lake, and numerous gold and silver mines are scattered across the map. This map is from a revised copper plate originally engraved by Pieter van den Keere and published in the 1628 edition of the Mercator Atlas Minor published by Jansson. This edition was made for the Atlas Soulage the titles and scale were translated into French, the cartouche revised and a compass rose added in the sea.

The atlas was only issued once and there is only one known complete copy extant, in the University Library of Leiden.

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.
