Sepia-tinted lithograph, image 270 x 380mm. 10¾ x 15".
Figures inside the Stock Exchange at Antwerp in Belgium, built in 1531. It was the first building in the world designed as stock and trade exchange. The entire complex burned down in 1858.

This original building was greatly admired by everyone, including Queen Elizabeth I of England, and the architecture heavily influenced Gresham's Royal Exchange of London. By Louis Haghe (1806-1885) for the First Series (of 3) of his 'Sketches in Belgium and Germany' (1840-50).

[Raimondini. n.d., c.1760.]
Engraving, 320 x 430mm. 12½ x 17". Staining in corners; foxing at top
A view d'optique of the Royal Palace in Berlin. Vues d’optique are hand-colored etchings and engravings intended to be viewed through a convex lens. The devices, known variously as zograscopes, optiques, optical machines and peepshows, were an optical entertainment of the late 18th and early 19th centuries. Vues d’optiques were rendered in high-key color and dramatic linear perspective, which enhanced the illusion of three-dimensionality when viewed through the lens.

Otto Eduard Leopold von Bismarck (1815-1898) was a Prussian German statesman and aristocrat of the 19th century. As Ministerpräsident of Prussia from 1862-1890, he oversaw the unification of Germany. In 1867 he became Chancellor of the North German Confederation. When the German Empire was formed in 1871, he served as its first Chancellor until 1890 and practiced Realpolitik, which gained him the nickname "The Iron Chancellor". As Chancellor, Bismarck held an important role in the German government and greatly influenced German and international politics both during and after his time of service. The Treaty of Versailles of 1871 ended the Franco-Prussian War and was signed by Adolphe Thiers, of the French Third Republic, and Otto von Bismarck, of the German Empire on February 26, 1871. This was a preliminary treaty used to solidify the initial armistice of January 27, 1871 between the two states. It was later ratified by the Treaty of Frankfurt on May 10 of the same year. The 1871 Treaty of Versailles made the decline of France obvious to the rest of the continent, and at the same time demonstrated the strength of a unified German empire. Paris's governing body, the Government of National Defense, initiated the armistice by surrendering to the Germans after the siege of Paris. Jules Favre, a prominent French politician, met with Otto von Bismarck in Versailles to sign the armistice to be put into effect January 28, 1871.
