Augsburg, Georg Matthäus Seutter, 1740.

The engraving is beautifully (late) hand-coloured making use of an appealing range of colouring. Engraving: 48,5 x 57 cm. Incl. margin: 50,2 x 59,5 cm. (Entire verso reinforced with translucent paper which also mends a tear in the upper-left corner, upper-right corner and the bottom of the engraving.
