Description:

Rare re-issue of Vander Aa's map of Mexico and Central America, by Covens & Mortier.'

The map depicts the region of Mesoamerica, from South Texas to Costa Rica, crowded with place names and religious establishments.

A distinguished bibliophile and collector, van der Aa was one of the most successful publishers of his time, concentrating on books of voyages and discovery. This position enabled him to obtain a great deal of early information about America.

This map was issued in van der Aa's La Galerie Agréable du Monde (1729, 66 parts in 27 vols.), which Frederik Muller (Catalogue pt. 1, pp. 1-2) describes as a "stupendous publication contain[ing] above 3,000 plates and maps, many by the best Dutch engravers....

The present example is  rare re-issue by Covens & Mortier, which we have never before seen on the market.
