DE EILANDEN MALDIVES

Code: M3829

Cartographer: Pieter Van Der AA

Date: 1707 Leiden

Size: 15.5*28cms

Original & Rare copper-engraving, uncoloured as published. A fine and decorative map of the Maldives, many islands of the atolls of the Maldives are named. The map encludes as well the neighbouring southern tip of India with Sri Lanka and the Indian Ocean towards Sumatra and the Street of Malacca. Ornated in the lower right corner with an allegoric title cartouche and a scale of mileage. The famous Dutch publisher and mapmaker Pieter Van der Aa (1659 Leiden - 1733 Leiden) published 'during the period 1682-1733, an enormous quantity of printed matter' (Koeman). This map was actually published in the first edition of his travelbooks 'Naauwkeurige versameling der gedenk-waardigste zee en landreysen na Oost en West-Indien', in Leiden 1706-08.

This map illustrates the region Diego Lopez de Sequeira visited in 1518 when he became the governor of the Portuguese possessions in India.

Good hand colour.

Very good condition.
