Three engravings on one page set in a decorative, separately engraved border.
- In upper left a good example of one of the earliest available views of New York (125x165mm) showing the small settlement viewed from aboard a ship in the harbor. The prominent features includes a windmill, flagstaff, church, fort and most prominently a gallows and swinging gibbet.
This engraving has been attributed to Laurens Hermansz Block who was the artist aboard the Dutch ship Lydia that visited New York in 1650
- To the right a couple from the New England area.
-In the bottom a fancy full depiction of the local animals, together with the legendary Unicorn with an eagle on its back.
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 Many of his atlases were made to order from outdated plates acquired from many of the older well-known cartographers.
A rare issue.
