Tot Amsterdam by Johannes Covens en Cornelis Mortier met Privilegie vande Hoog. Mog: H.H. Staten Gener.l. [n.d., c.1720.]
Two engravings. Each c.395 x 480mm, 15½ x 19". Centre folds, some creasing.
A plan of the gardens of Catshuis, the official residence of the prime minister of the Netherlands since 1963, with a view of the Orangerie. Built by (and now named after) Jacob Cats (1577-1660), a poet and politician, the house was acquired in 1674 by Hans William, Baron Bentinck, 1st Earl of Portland (1649-1709), who began to redesign the gardens as shown here in the same year. Bentinck's coat of arms is shown lower left of the plan. As Bentinck was a favourite of the stadtholder William Henry, Prince of Orange (later William III of England) the Orangery was a significant feature. The key under the Orangery view links to that of the plan. Drawn and engraved by Johannes vande Avelen for Nicolaus Janszen Visscher's 'Het Schoone Perk van Sorgvliet', c.1690.
