[Collection of 13 aquatint views of Amsterdam].Amsterdam, Evert Maaskamp, [ca. 1826]. Oblong 4to (21 x 25 cm). With 13 sepia aquatint plates (image size ca. 15.5 x 19 cm). Contemporary green boards.
Cf. Landwehr, Coloured plates 365 and 452. Charming collection of 13 sepia aquatint plates with views of Amsterdam, published by Evert Maaskamp. They include the Royal Palace (interior and exterior), the stained glass windows of the Oude Kerk, a theatre, a concert at the Felix Meritis and several views of Amsterdam's famous canals. All but the last plate were also issued by Maaskamp in 4 instalments with a letterpress title-page, Nouvelle statistique historique d'Amsterdam, each instalment accompanied by 8 pages of text, dated 1812 by Landwehr. At least the present series appears to be later, for the laid paper tissue guards, from a single paper stock, match one from 1826 (Voorn, Noord-Holland 184). With bookplate on paste-down. One plate with a marginal water stain, not affecting the image, some occasional offsetting on the tissue guards and the back of previous plates, some other plates slightly stained in the margins, but otherwise in very good condition. Binding worn along the extremities.
