1 in stock


Scarce copper engraving with 9 miniature maps and prints shows the events of 1721: Plague in France, the sea battle of Tripoli, beatification of John of Nepomuk etc. 

The engraving belongs to a series, representing famous European events from the years 1700-1722 in images, views and maps. The engravings, usually composed from ca 12 small images, were first issued by Christoph Weigel in Nuremberg every year as broadsides in small folio format. In 1739 his widow republished the series in a much smaller format with this title page. Both the broadsides and the smaller versions of them are very rare on the market.


Seltene Graphik mit 9 Ansichten auf einem Blatt: Pest in Frankreich, Johannes Nepomuk wurde von Papst Innozenz XIII. selig, Seeschlacht von Tripoli, … Aus: “Memorabilia Seculi XVIII P. C. N. in Tabulis annalibus aeri incisis. Denckwürdige Begebenheiten des 18ten Jahrhunderts nach Christi Geburt…”.

Knapp beschnitten, leichte Faltspur, ansonsten gut erhalten.
