Engraving, sheet 330 x 270mm (13 x 10½"). Trimmed and tipped into album sheet.
Half length portrait of Dutch spectacle maker Zacharias Janssen (c.1580-c.1638) within a frame. Also known as Zacharias Jansen or Sacharias Jansen; he is associated with the invention of the first optical telescope and/or the first truly compound microscope, but these claims (made 20 years after his death) may be fabrications put forward by his son. Hendrick Berckman (1629 buried 27 March 1679) was a Dutch Golden Age painter. Jacob van Meurs (c.1619 - c. 1680) was a Dutch engraver and publisher from Amsterdam.
