La Province De Venezuela ... : A. Montanus / P. Van Der Aa

click here to view a large version in a separate window

A most attractive example of the standard depiction of Venezuela during the seventeenth century, here republished by the prolific Pieter Van der Aa. The map shows the northern coast of South America as far east as the mouth of the Orinoco, and the islands from Aruba to Marigalante and Guadeloupe. This very uncommon map of Venezuela is based on the work of the important Dutch cartographer, Hessel Gerritsz, popularised by Blaeu, and first published, at this scale in Montanus volume "America". The map concentrates the detail along the coastlines with the interior graphically engraved to show mountains, forests and rivers. Van der Aa acquired the plates, among many others and had them republished with a newly engraved title cartouche flanked by two Dutch traders with natives, Neptune and merfolk providing an interesting illustration filling most of the Caribbean Sea. A good sharp impression of this rare map.
