This plate from 'Les Indes orientales et occidentales, et autres lieux.' was published by Pieter van der Aa in Leiden in 1710. The work is extremely rare. It was later re-used in the very scarse: 'La galerie agreable du monde (...). Tome premier des Indes Orientales.', published by P. van der Aa, Leyden, c. 1725. It is said that only 100 copies were printed. Ref: Koeman Aa9; Phillips 2780 note.
