Some Problems in the Research of Cartographic Representations of Croatian Cities from the 16th Century

Ivka Kljajić, Miljenko Lapaine


Analysis of representations of Croatian cities bound into five manuscript atlases: two atlases (signature Cod. 8607 and Cod. 8609) from the Collection of Manuscripts, Documents and Heritage of the AustrianNational Library (Handschriften-, Autographen- und Nachlass-Sammlung der Österreichischen Nationalbibliothek) in Vienna, two (signature Schr. XXVI, F. 96, Nr. 6 and Schr. XXVI, F. 96, Nr. 11) from the Saxon Central State Archive (Sächsisches Hauptstaatsarchiv) in Dresden and one (signature Hfk. Bd. XV) from the Main Land Archive (Generallandesarchiv) in Karlsruhe. Some of the problems encountered during the research are described and explained in the paper. They are: determination of more accurate data about the first discoveries about the existence of representations of Croatian cities, the titles of the atlases and the time of their production. Incorrect signature citation is stressed, as well as the problem of incomplete data.
