Academie Imperiale in Augsburg

"Prospect in Bremen bey der Allee von der Alt- und Neustadt die Weser hinunter"

Drawn by J. H. Grönninger, engraved by Balthasar Friedrich Leizel(t)

Dimensions: 40 x 31.5 cm
Image size: 37.5 x 26 cm

Hand-coloured sheet from an extensive collection of peep-box sheets by the Augsburg publisher Académie Imperiale. The sheet is mounted on firm cardboard. Overall, slightly dirty, but in good condition.

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.
