Scarce Small Map of Corfu.

The Island of Corfu.... Kerkyra. Schenk, Petri. The Island of Corfu.... Kerkyra. "Het Eilant Corfu.... Corcyra...." Amsterdam Schenk, Petri 1716=1720
Copper engraved map of Corfu/Kerkyra by Petrus Schenk. Modern hand colour; verso blank.
Scarce small map of the island of Corfu, taken from a larger map sheet , probably from "Schouwburg van den oorlog, beginnende van Koning Karel den II, tot op Koning Karel den III Theatrum bellicum, incipiens a Carolo II. Hispaniarum Rege ad Carolum III. Amsterdam: Pieter Schenk."[1714-1720]
The map is drawn upon a drape or wall hanging with fringe; it shows the island lying off the coast , with the large bay of Butrinto . the text below in Dutch and French discusses the events of July 8th 1716. known as
The Siege of Corfu;after their success in the Morea, the Ottomans moved against the Venetian-held Ionian Islands. They had occupied the island of Lefkada (Santa Maura), which the Venetians had taken in 1684, and the fort of Butrinto opposite Corfu. On 8 July 1716, an Ottoman army of 33,000 men landed on Corfu, the most important of the Ionian islands. Despite an indecisive naval battle on the same day, the Ottoman land army continued its disembarkment and advanced towards the city of Corfu. On 19 July, after capturing the outlying forts of Mantouki, Garitsa, Avrami and of the Saviour, the siege began.[The defence was led by Count Johann Matthias von der Schulenburg, who had roughly 8,000 men at his command. The extensive fortifications and the determination of the defenders withstood several assaults. After a great storm on 9 August—which the defenders attributed to the intervention of Corfu's patron saint, Saint Spyridon—caused significant casualties among the besiegers, the siege was broken off on 11 August and the last Ottoman forces withdrew on 20 August. Good impression. good margins to left and bottom but short top and right as it has obvoiusly been cut from a larger sheet.
