Description

Description: Plate 16: ‘Commerce du Japon / Japanse Koophandel – Magnificence du Roi Calaminhan aux Indes Orientales / Calaminhans Eer Pracht.’ (Japanese Trade – Magnificence of the King of Kalimantan, Indonesia.) This plate shows the Dutch VOC trading post in Nagasaki, Japan on the left. On the right an Indonesian King and his entourage in Kalimantan, Borneo. Extremely rare in any edition.

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. This plate was originally published in ‘Les Indes orientales et occidentales, et autres lieux.’, by Romeyn de Hooghe, published by Pieter van der Aa, leiden, 1710. Extremely rare in any edition.

Artists and Engravers: Pieter van der Aa (Leiden 1659-1733) was a Dutch publisher best known for preparing maps and atlases. The Galerie Agreable contains plates and maps by the best Dutch engravers: Luiken, Goeree, Mulder, Stoopendaal, Aldert Meijer, Romeyn de Hooghe, ao.
