DESCRIPTION : THIS SMALL MAP, WHICH COVERS FROM LONG ISLAND TO CAPE HENRY, IS A CRUDE DERIVATIVE IN THE MARYLAND-DELAWARE AREA OF THE JOHN SMITH MAP OF 1612 (SEE MAP #112S5) THAT HAS BEEN REORIENTED WITH NORTH AT THE TOP. SINCE THE AUGUSTINE HERRMAN MAP (SEE MAP # 173H5) HAD ALREADY BEEN ISSUED FOR OVER 30 YEARS WHEN THIS MAP APPEARED, IT WAS OBVIOUSLY OUT OF DATE WHEN PUBLISHED.

ACCORDING TO KOEMAN AND PHILLIPS, THE MAP FIRST APPEARED IN 1707 IN VAN DER AA'S NAAUKEURIGE VERSAMELING DER GEDENK-WAARDIGSTE ZEE EN LANDREYSEN NA OOST EN WEST-INDIEN, 1707. THE MAP WAS LATER PUBLISHED WITHOUT PLATE NUMBERS IN CARTES DES ITINERAIRES & VOIAGES MODERNES...., A LEIDE, CHEZ PIERRE VAN DER AA (1707). IN 1714, THE MAPS FROM THE SAME PLATES WERE INCLUDED IN HIS ATLAS NOUVEAU ET CURIEUX DES PLUS CELEBRES ITINERAIRES..., A LEIDE, PAR PIERRE VAN DER AA, MARCHAND LIBRAIRE. IN THIS PUBLICATION, THE TITLE IN FRENCH WAS ADDED IN THE BOTTOM MARGIN AND THE MAP IS ENCLOSED WITHIN ORNAMENTAL BORDERS, REPRESENTING FRAMING. THE NUMBERING IS IN MANUSCRIPT.

PIETER VAN DER AA WAS BORN IN LEIDEN IN 1659, BECAME APPRENTICED TO THE BOOKSELLERS TRADE AT AGE 9 AND DIED IN 1733. MANY OF HIS ATLASES WERE MADE TO ORDER FROM OUTDATED PLATES ACQUIRED FROM MANY OF THE OLDER WELL-KNOWN CARTOGRAPHERS. HIS WORK LACKS ORIGINALITY AND OFTEN IS BADLY DEFORMED AS A RESULT OF INADEQUATE MAP PROJECTION. CARTOGRAPHICALLY, AA'S MAPS ARE OF LITTLE INTEREST.

DATA IS FROM KOEMAN AND PHILLIPS ATLASES.
