Maesricht (Maastricht)
Hand coloured copperplate engraving of the Dutch city of Maastricht, as seen from above. With explanatory title (Maesricht) at the top of the print and a cartouch in the bottom right corner saying:'TRAIECTVM ad Mosan.'. The crest of Luik in the upper left, and that of the King of Spain in the upper right corner. ca. 1582. Overall size: 24,7 x 33,7 cm; plate size: 24 x 32,2 cm. Good/fair state. Some age related discolouration. Roughly coloured. The top of the print is damaged due to the fact that the left side of the print got stuck to the right while folding. This results in torn-off pieces of print. Handlaid paper pasted to contemporary paper. This print originates from 'Lodovico Guicciardini, Descrittione di tutti i Paesi bassi (...), Antwerpen, Plantijn, 1582'. This was an influential account of the history and the arts of the Low Countries, accompanied by city maps by various leading engravers. Deys 2001.
