Opper-Ethiopien of 'T Ryk der Abyssinen door de E. Vaders H. Lobo en M. Almeida . . .

Decorative map centered on the Red Sea and the Sources of the Nile River, published by Vander Aa.

The map shows the explorations of Jeronimo Lobo. Jerónimo Lobo (1595– 1678) was a Portuguese Jesuit missionary. He took part in the unsuccessful efforts to convert Ethiopia from the native Ethiopian church to Roman Catholicism until the expulsion of the Jesuits in 1643. Afterwards he wrote an account of his time in Ethiopia, Itinerário, which is an important source for the history and culture of that country.

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.
