Rare antique engraved map of Poland and Prussia, published by Pierre Vander Aa in Liege.
The map extends to Krakow in the south, west to Berlin, and east of Bialystok.
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.
