'T Zuider America van Terra Firma en Gujana Voor by Rio de la Plata, tot aan de Straat Magellaan en Kusten togen de Zuid-Zee

Detailed regional map of South America, illustrating the voyage of Ulrich Schmidt von Straubingen to the Rio La Plata, detailing the Spanish conquests in the region from 1534 to 1554. This work was not translated into Dutch until Vander Aa and was not translated into English until the Haklyut Society edition in 1891. Includes decorative cartouche and vignette.

The map offered here was used by Vander Aa to illustrate a Dutch Translation of Ulrich Schmidt's Voyage to the region. 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. Striking full color example of this beautifully engraved map.

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.
