Our map of Spain and Portugal was published in Chiquet’s ‘Le nouveau et curieux atlas géographique et historique ...’.
Chiquet (1673-1721) was a relatively successful Parisian engraver, print and mapseller. He published Antoine Menard’s ‘Le nouveau et curieux atlas’ in 1711, and reprinted it with Menard’s name burnished from the plate and replaced with his own and a new date, 1719, as here.
