THE CARTOGRAPHER

PIETER VAN DER AA

1659 - 1733

Pieter vander Aa was a publisher, editor and bookseller working in Leiden. As well as maps of some counties he produced a number of small town plans based on the much earlier plans by Braun and Hogenberg and John Speed with corrections and additions. The plan of Edinburgh is copied from the plan of Gordon of Rothiemay, engraved by Andrew Johnston between 1708 and 1714. They vary in size with many being about 5 x 5 inches. They appear in

I have been buying and selling antique maps since the early 1960's during which time I had a gallery in Watergate Street, Chester for 30 years. I am now able to offer through my websites a personal service to map and print collectors.
