Copper engraving, 17 x 22.5 cm, original hand colour in outline, blank verso. This map of Muscovy, or European Russia, was published in Chiquet’s ‘Le nouveau et curieux atlas géographique et historique …’.

Chiquet (1673-1721) was a relatively successful Parisian engraver, print- and map-seller. 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.
