Valvasor, Janez Vajkard: Die Ehre dess Hertzogthums Crain,1689
The Glory of the Duchy Carniola is our most comprehensive book (3532 pages) and of the best of its kind in Europe. With 528 illustrations it is one of the main sources on older Slovenian history and a detailed description of the Carniola region at the time.
The original copper engraving of the map from Linhart's history book. It features the Carantanian territory, before the region was made part of the Carolingian Empire, and is the first description of the Slovenian nation as a unique branch of the Slavic tree, as well as probably the first example of the idea of a direct, unbroken link between the language of Carantania and modern Slovenian. The map Conspectus is also the first representation of Slovenian ethnic territory.
