The Republic of Ragusa is better known today as that of Dubrovnik which existed from 1358 to 1808. It forms today one of the finest cities in Croatia. Below it is a view of Negroponte in Greece, now known as Chalcis on the Aegean Coast. These fine views are by Matthaus Merian who began publishing the ‘Theatrum Europaeum’ in 1633, it was not finished until 1738 by which time 21 volumes had been issued including some 20,000 pages of text, 720 maps, plans, views and other engravings and nearly 700 portraits.
