Europe, by François Halma. Before 1713

This map is probably an earlier state of Van der Aa's large-format Europe map: Goeree and Baptist's names have a prominent place here on the bottom plinth of the cartouche. At Van der Aa, they were moved and replaced by Pieter Van der Aa's imprint, and the background shading is disturbed.


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.
