Title : William Adams Reystogt na Oost-Indien.. JAPAN...
Map maker : VAN DER AA,P..
Date : Leiden 1729.
Size : 8.7 x 11.4 inches. / 22.0 x 29.0 cm.
Colouring : Uncoloured.

Description :Map of Japan and Korea. In lower right a fine title cartouche showing William Adams during an audience with the shogun, who sits under a baldachin on a fancifully portrayed throne.
William Adams came to Japan in 1600 as the pilot of the first Dutch ship to arrive there. He was taken into the service of the shogun and died in Hirado in 1620, without having returned to Europe.
Although not renowned for the originality of his work, Pieter van der Aa is highly thought of for the design and quality of his output. It's a good and dark impression with a very decorative title cartouche.
From Galerie Agréable du Monde, a sixty-six volume atlas complied in 1729 and said to have been issued in an edition of 100 copies only (Tooley, p. 1).
The work contained over 3000 plates and maps. Van der Aa states in the preface that nearly all the plates had been purchased from various Dutch publishers.
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 Many of his atlases were made to order from outdated plates acquired from many of the older well-known cartographers.
AOG, Japan a cartographic vision, Cat.59
Condition : Printed from two plates. Printers crease next to center fold. Generally in very good condition.
