Frans Hogenberg - Kurtzer Bericht, dess jenigen was sich ihm Niederlandt in Religions Sachen und sunst zugetragen hat - 1566/1593
This album contains 158 of the so-called. “Geschichtsblätter” by Hogenberg about the Eighty Years' War in the Netherlands, and the Cologne Wars in Germany (where Spaniards fought on the Catholic side and the States Party on the Protestant side).

All 158 plates are original copper engravings of these newsprints, published in Cologne by Frans Hogenberg and his studio in the period 1566-1593. Bound in modern 'old style' parchment binding, with modern endpapers and modern title page. Oblong folio.

This rare series is in beautiful condition. The binding is fine. The prints are all fine, on paper with wide margins. The paper is slightly browned with some soiling in places. Paper with (light) spots, mostly in the margins. The last 11 prints are on somewhat thicker paper (sometimes mounted on an old leaf). These last prints are in fair to moderate condition, some with minor loss of image. There are also some very rare 16th-century copies after Hogenberg.

Each print is shown in the pictures.
