Hungary antique map - Danckerts, 1684
Novissima et accuratissima totius Hungariae tabula
Nice map of Hungary after the work of Pierre Duval [1618-1683]. Duval was born in Abbeville (France) and moved to Paris along with other Academics and intellectuals at the urging of the French King. Here he eventually became Geographe Ordinaire du Roy. In that position he produced a large number magnificant maps.
The map shows Hungary, Transylvania and Slavonia with bordering countries, as well as the course of the Danube between Vienna and 'Bodon'. At the bottom a decorative Cartouche with an Ottoman with drawn sword. (Is he theatening Christian angels?)
