Copper engraving, 17 x 22.5 cm, original hand colour in outline, blank verso.

The tiny (but relatively prosperous) mercantile Republic of Ragusa, centred on Dubrovnik, maintained a precarious independence by playing off Ottoman, Venetian and Austrian interests against one another. Our map of the Dalmatian Coast 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.
