Hand-coloured sheet from the 500-title collection with peep-box images by the Augsburg publishing house Academie Imperiale, these are today sought-after views of days gone by, which no longer exist nowadays; in this case as well.
German optical views are far superior to foreign ones, the copper plates are much more particularised, they have lovingly crafted details and a distinctly finer colouring, which makes each of them a wonderful visual treat nowadays.
