  • Norway was restored as a kingdom in 1661, albeit in union with Denmark. The table at the top left of the map lists ancient kings of Norway, next to a vignette which probably depicts whaling.

    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 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.
