Rare Plate of the Castles of the Peloponnesus by Danckerts.

The Forts of the Peloponnesus. Danckerts Justus The Fort's of the Peloponnesus. "D' Voornnamaste Fortressen van Moræa." Amsterdam. "uytgegeven door Justus Danckerts met Privelegio va de E:H;Staten van Holl: en Westvries-lant." c 1680s
Scarce copper engraved plate by Justus Danckerts showing the forts of the Peloponnesus. Original colour, verso blank. Title to banner.
The scarce plate shows 18 views of towns and forts of the Peloponnesus.
The towns shown are S. Maura [Levkada], Lepanto, Patras, Cefalonia, Navarino, Modon [Methoni] Coron, Calamata, Malvasia [Monomvasia], Napoli di Romania [Nafplion], Megara Athens, Casstel tornese, Mistra, Corinth, Zarnata, Fortresse de Zante, Fortresse de Cerigo [Kythera].
Published around the same period as Frederick de Wit's famous map of the Peloponnesus,[ Zacharakis3709/2387], Danckert's would also publish a map of Greece surrounded by vignettes[ Zacharakis Map 1280/869]
However these are not those views, which were similar to those of de Wit, who had used reduced versions of Coronelli's views from the Venetian author's "Memorie Isttorigriograpfice elli Regni della Morea, Negreponte et littoral.."[1686]. Here we see sea battles before the ports of Patras, Navarino, Modon and Nafplion which suggest they were original illustrations of the battles of the Venetian Turkish war [1684-1699.]
It is possible that the sheet was published as an adjunct to his map of the Morea and it has been suggested that the vignettes could be cut to surround that map as a border.
. Removed from a frame, light toning; some creasing at centre; ink anotaion below view of Coron; ink number to upper right corner.
