Abilltung wie königliche Maistät in Engelandt Die Artickel Dess Spanischen Heyraths Jur: Bekreftiget Anno 1623. Lunden.
[Cologne: Abraham Hogenberg, 1627.]
Coloured engraving. 270 x 320mm (10¾ x 12½"). Evidence of crack in printing plate (as the BM example).
Four scenes relating to the Spanish Match treaty, from Kaspar Ens' ''Fama Austriaca'': James I signing the treaty in the Chapel Royal; James dining with the Spanish ambassador; James in procession; and a prospect of London, with the Norman St Paul's Cathedral. In 1614 a Spanish embassy arrived in London to reach agreement to stop English privateers attacking Spanish shipping in the Americas and prevent England joining the Thirty Years' War. In return Spain would cease supporting opponents of James's rule in Ireland. Spain also proposed the marriage of the Spanish Infanta to Charles, Prince of Wales (later Charles I), promising a dowry of half-a-million pounds. James, who desperately needed money, was enthusiastic, but Parliament refused to accept any deal and James dissolved it in fury. It eventually transpired that the Infanta had no intention of marrying a protestant, and Spain was just stringing out negotiations to stop England entering the war. In 1625 Charles married Henrietta Maria of France instead.
