    [Pieter van der Aa]. Nova Orbis Terraouei [sic] Tabula Accuratissime Delineata. [Place of publication not identified (Leide?): circa 1713].
    [Pieter van der Aa]. Nova Orbis Terraouei [sic] Tabula Accuratissime Delineata. Mappe Monde ou description generale du globe terrestre et aquatique. Selon les Nouvelles observations de Messrs. De l'Academie des Sciences etc. [No place (Leide?)]: [Pieter van der Aa], [circa 1713]. Engraved double hemisphere map showing California as an island (sheet measures 27.25 x 20.5 inches; 694 x 521 mm). Later hand-color. Creases along old folds, some expert repairs to verso, few repairs with cellophane tape. Very good. Appears to be an unfinished or perhaps proof copy of van der Aa's Nova orbis terraquei tabula accuratissime delineata. This copy with a few notable differences, including "terraquei" spelled as "terraouei," imprint lacking from cartouche, and a portrait figure in the medallion rather than a small globe.
