Pieter van der Aa (1659-1733) was a prolific publisher of the late seventeenth and early eighteenth century. His output was not just restricted to atlases: he also produced topographical and other illustrated works, including the spectacular twenty-eight volume Naaukeurige versameling der gedenkwaardigste See- en Land-Reysen.While other atlases are undoubtedly of more cartographical significance, Aa’s Nouveau théâtre, particularly with the fine colouring found in this copy, is an imposing and highly attractive work. Complete copies are rarely seen at auction.
