The table at the top left of this map lists the kings of Denmark, above a cartouche which lays emphasis on Denmark’s contribution to science and astronomy.

Our map 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.
