Large hand-coloured view of Istanbul.
Size: 40 x 51 cm.
Condition: good. Short margins. Verso: blank. Hand-coloured.
Hand-coloured print of Istanbul with at the bottom 3 pieces of text in Latin, Dutch and French. The bottom right shows an index of the 29 most important buildings.
This is a rare view of Istanbul drawn from Matthaus Merian's famous view of the city in a slightly different format. It shows the city skyline along with quaint scenes of every-day life, including hunters with their dogs in the near foreground. The title is engraved on a ribbon in the sky, with an additional title (Constantinopolitanae Urbis Effigies ad Vivum Expressa) in top margin. Tri-lingual poetry lauding the city (Latin, Dutch and French) and a key to the engraving are below the view. Engraved by Seger Tilemans. This view also appeared in De Jonghe's rare atlas of city views.
