A prospect of Grenada, by Israel Silvestre (1621-1691), etcher and publisher of Paris. In 1662 he was appointed 'dessinateur et graveur du Roi' and in 1673 he became drawing-master to Louis, le Grand Dauphin. As well as publishing his own work, he inherited a large number of plates from his uncle, Israel Henriet, including works by Jacques Callot and Stefano della Bella.
