Pair of interesting maps of Dalmatia that describe the region that was contested between the Venetian Republic and the Ottoman Empire during the middle of the 17th century. The first map illustrates the region of Split (Spalato) and Klis (Clissa). The city of Split is seen as part of the Diocletian's Palace, the ruins of Salona are shown in the middle-ground with Klis on the hillside beyond. The second map illustrates the region of Sibenik (Sebenico) located in central Dalmatia where the river Krka flows into the Adriatic Sea.
