Le Detroit de Malacca, Dressee sur les memoires des plus savans Voyageurs modernes . . .

Finely executed map of the Straits of Singapore and the Straits of Malacca, which appeared in Pierre Vander Aa's monumental La Galerie agreable du Monde . . ., published in Leiden.

The map shows Sumatra from Tanjong Goeree to Pulau Singkep and P. Lada (Langkawi) to the Straits of Singapore and Tanjung Pinang.

The map provides both fine detail and the exquisite engraving style characteristic of Vander Aa's work.

The map is now quite rare on the market. We locate on examples in dealer catalogues in the past decade.

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.
