Sought after plate from the very decorative 1668 edition of Pluvinal's L'instruction du roy, en l'exercice de monter à cheval, Amsterdam 1668.
47.5 x 40 cm
Fine engraving by Crispijn de Passe II on the art of duelling from one of the classic works of the 17th century on dressage, riding, and jousting. Antoine de Pluvinel, the author of the work, was the instructor for Louis XIII of France and the prints illustrate a dialogue between master and pupil. The scene is enclosed within classical architectural borders (in woodcut) of columns supporting a frieze with raised decoration, and decorated with coats of arms.
