'T Noorder Deel Van Amerika Door C. Kolumbus in zyn Eerste Togt Ontdekt en dessefs Kusten en Voor-Eylanden Een en andermaal bevaaren  (Island of California)

Decorative map of North America, which appeared in the Dutch translation of the Narrative of Columbus' first voyage to the New World.

The map shows California as an Island, highly inaccurate Mississippi River and open Great Lakes, with no sign of the Northwest Coast of America.

In all, Vander Aa issued 130 translations of important 15th, 16th and 17th Century Travel Narratives to the America, Africa and Asia, which were issued in 28 volumes in the early part of the 18th Century. Many of the narratives are either unobtainable or extremely rare in their original formats.

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.
