Pieter van der Aa was a Dutch bookseller, publisher and geographer. Editor of the work entitled Les délices de l'Espagne et du Portugal, on Spanish and Portuguese life and customs, as well as descriptions of monuments and artistic works, published in Dutch "Beschryving van Spanjen en Portugal", and in the city of Leiden in 1707. That same year the French edition of that work appeared, which would be published again, also in French, in 1715 and in 1741; but in all the French versions, Juan Álvarez de Colmenar appears as the author, perhaps the pseudonym of the true author, perhaps of French origin. This work is illustrated with "figures in carved carving drawn in the same places by Juan Álvarez de Colmenar".
