Ducatus Sleswicensis Australis

Nice example of Valk & Schenk's detailed map of the Southern part of Schleiswig, published in Amsterdam.

Extends from Tonning and Kiell in the south to Tonder and Apenrade in the north.

Other larger towns include Sleswich.

The detailed depiction of roads is unusual for a map of this period.

Peter Schenk the Elder (1660-1711) moved to Amsterdam in 1675 and began to learn the art of mezzotint. In 1694 he bought some of the copperplate stock of the mapmaker Johannes Janssonius, which allowed him to specialize in the engraving and printing of maps and prints. He split his time between his Amsterdam shop and Leipzig and also sold a considerable volume of materials to London.

Peter Schenk the Elder had three sons. Peter the Younger carried on his father’s business in Leipzig while the other two, Leonard and Jan, worked in Amsterdam. Leonard engraved several maps and also carried on his father’s relationship with engraving plates for the Amsterdam edition of the Histoire de l'Académie Royale des Sciences.
