[PEETERS, Johannes (Jan) (after)].
A detailed ink drawing of the harbour of and fortifications of Edremit, an Ottoman port city on the west coast of Turkey. The drawing is made after Johannes Peeter's print Ladimistri nel' archipelago, originally engraved by Lucas Vorsterman the younger and first appearing 1664/65 in the series Diverse vis te[!] delli Dardaneli del' dtrecio come delle città e castelli nel archipelago. The series was published by Jacob (Jacques) Peeters (1637-1695), and the prints were engraved after drawings by his brother Jan (Johannes) Peeters (1625-1677), best known for his drawings of city views engraved by Merian. Johannes Peeters was a pupil of their eldest brother Bonaventura Peeters, a well-known painter and draughtsman, and specialized in maritime scenes.Slightly browned and with a few small and mostly marginal stains. The foremost canon appears to have lost some of its ink, but the drawing is otherwise in good condition. The corners are damaged or discoloured from a previous mounting, far outside the border of the drawing.

Schorer studierte in Strassburg, betrieb zugleich auch astronomische Studien und veröffentlichte 1641 einen astrologischen Kalender, von dem 30 weitere Jahrgänge erschienen sind. 1643 brachte er in Basel zu, bereiste darauf Burgund, hielt sich einige Zeit in Montbéliard auf und begab sich hierauf nach Padua, wo er 1654 promovierte. Nach Deutschland zurückgekehrt, ließ er sich an seinem Geburtsort nieder, erwarb dort das Vertrauen des Herzogs von Württenberg. 1655 wurde er Stadtphysikus von Memmingen.
