Volume 1 (of 2) of the second part of the scarce folio issue of the Naaukeurige versameling, van der Aa's influential compilation of early Spanish American discovery narratives, based on Herrera. This exemplar is identical to item B004, except that it comprises 8 maps (of the West Indies, Cuba, HIspaniola, Mexico and Central America, Terra Firma, South America, North America, and the Western Hemisphere) on 5 folding sheets, instead of 20 maps on 11 sheets. It includes the same 59 half-page text engravings of discovery scenes throughout the Americas, derived from de Bry, and is in beautiful condition. An extraordinary addition to any Americana library.
