Amsterdam: Petrus Schenk, 1705. unbound. very good(+). Map. Engraving with original hand outline. Map measures 18 7/8" x 23", page measures 21" x 24.25". Beautiful map of southern France in high detail. Shows the coastline from Narbonne to the Italian border in the south, and Lyon in the north. Minor aging along edges. Petrus Schenk (c.1660%u20131711) was a German engraver and cartographer. He began his training in Amsterdam in the art of mezzotint and soon began working closely with Gerard Valck. The two took advantage of the bustling cartographic trade in the city and quickly expanded their business from portraits and prints into maps and globes. In 1700, Schenk grew the business further by moving to Leipzig, Germany and opening a shop. As his sons and grandson returned to the Netherlands to become active engravers as well, the Schenk firm developed into one of the best-known publishing houses in 18th-century Amsterdam. This map attests to Schenk's prolific production and skill in both cartographic artistry and business.
