    This map of the Low Countries includes a note on the Dutch Revolt at its foot, concluding with a remark about Dutch adherence to ‘la religion prétendue réformée’ which leaves no doubt about Chiquet’s sympathies.

    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.
