Simonin In et Fe. Avec Privile Du Roy [n.d., c.1705].
Engraving. Sheet 165 x 240mm (6½ x 9½"). Trimmed within plate, laid on album paper, glue stains at edges.
A cavalry battle, with the riders firing pistols, drawn and engraved by Claude Simonin (c.1635-1721), an engraver and designer of ornamental gunfittings. It was published in 'Plusieurs Pieces et Ornements Darquebuzerie', a collection of designs for ornamental fittings on guns. Originally published in 1684 as a set of eight plates, an enlarged edition of 13 plates was published by Parisian gunmaker Laurent le Languedoc in 1705. Another expanded edition was published about 1776 by Gilles-Antoine Demarteau (this plate without the privilege, as per Metropolitan Museum 2011.310.1.13). On the reverse is Moncornet's portrait of 'Henry Duc de la Trémoille et de Thouars Pair de France'.
