Hektorović Collection (1979)

Petar Hektorović (1487-1582), was a Croatian nobleman and well known figure in sixteenth century Croatian literature. He lived on the island of Hvar which was at that time under Venetian rule but was under threat from invasion by the Ottoman Empire which had conquered most of South-Eastern Europe at that time.
