Delft: Henrik van Krooneveld, 1698. No Binding. A folding copper engraving with two images of Cairo.

The lower one shows an oasis with donkeys and horses in the foreground and surrounding palms and minarets. These engravings, with wonderful detail, are from the publication of Cornelius van Bruyn, the 17th C painter who travelled through the Levant and to Constantinople between 1677 and 1685. 65.5 x 32.5 cm. These large and very handsome engravings are in excellent condition and quite unique in their historical interest. Very Good. Item #019887
