Engraving with very large margins. Platemark: 270 x 215mm. (10½ x 8½"). Occasional foxing.
A panoramic view of the town of Nuremberg. Spires of typical Bavarian architecture can be seen along the horizon in the distance; cattle are grazing on some land whilst figures walking, and on horse-back, pass through a trail in the centre of the scene. Several figures on horse -back are in the foreground, looking out towards the view of the town. Plate to Schenk's 'Hecatompolis' (1702), which included one hundred profile views of cities throughout the world.
