Lambertus van den Bos ~ Groningen





Uit het boek 'Toneel des Oorlogs', een van de vele prenten over het beleg. Het is geen prent van Romeyn de Hooghe overigens.

Mijn dank aan Edward Wells BV, voor de toestemming om de foto van de print te reproducren. In de catalogus van Edward Wells zijn overigens nog meer mooie prenten te vinden.



From the book 'The Stage of War', by Lambertus van den Bos(ch), or Lambertus Sylvius, one of the many prints of the siege of Groningen. The google book doesn't do justice to the plate, but I got permission of Edward Wells BV, to reproduce a picture of the plate (more plates on their website), that shows up in various forms, by various authors. This one is not a Romeyn de Hooghe. Today I read the book in the university library, and the quality and the legibility of the book is astounding, considering it's almost 350 years old! Interesting to note is, that in different versions of the book, different plates are published, most of them of important people, but also maps of towns and fortresses.

Unfortunatly taking pics at the library is a bit of a problem and my iPhone has really troubles focussing, but I hope some editing will improve matters.
