Description

Description: Plate: ‘La ville de Palembang dans l’Ile de Sumatra’. (The city of Palembang on the island of Sumatra.) This plate shows a sea battle before the city of Palembang on Sumatra, Indonesia. With compass rose, legend and scale. This plate originates from the very scarse: ‘La galerie agreable du monde (…). Tome premier des Indes Orientales.’, published by P. van der Aa, Leyden, c. 1725. This famous work was published in 66 parts and is the biggest print / map book ever published. Van der Aa incorporated plates by other publishers such as Blaeu, Visscher, de Wit, meurs, Halma, Mortier, Allard in this work and often added broad decorative borders. Probably the costliest and complete universal geographic work ever produced. It is said that only 100 copies were printed. Ref: Koeman Aa9; Phillips 2780 note.
