Africa, by François Halma. Before 1713

Unrecorded edition of Van der Aa's large-format Africa map, by François Halma.

This map is an earlier state of Van der Aa's large-format Africa map. Van der Aa added his imprint in a small cartouche under the original titel.


François Halma (Langerak, 1653 – Leeuwarden, 1722)

François Halma was a publisher who first established his business at Utrecht in 1674; later moved to Amsterdam where he worked as printer and publisher from 1699-1710 and finally settled at Leeuwarden, where he died in 1722.

Apart from many theological and historical works, he published a small number of geographical works and atlases. In 1695, during his period at Utrecht, he published Ptolemy’s Tabulae Geographicae orbis terrarium. His finest work appeared at Leeuwarden in 1718: the re-issue of Schotanus à Sterringa’s Friesche Atlas of 1698. He also published an edition of Sanson’s Description de l’Univers.
