"'t Vermaarde Park van Anguien - Le Fameux Parc d'Anguien".

Copper etching by Frederic de Wit. Amsterdam. Ca. 1650. Published in “European Palaces and Castles"

The famous Park of Enghien (in the Wallonian province of Henaut) dates back to the 15th century, when Pierre de Luxembourg transformed the forests ajacent to his chateau into a park. Two hundred years later, in the year 1607, chateau and parc were sold by the then owner Henry IV of France to a noble family by the name of Arenberg. These transformed the park into one of the most beautiful parks of Europe. This large folio size view of the parc gives an impression of it in the middle of the 17th century.

"Arethusa"

Copper etching by Ludwig Christoph Glotsch after the drawing by Paul Decker sen. (1677-1713).

Published in Johann Christph Volckamer's “Nuremberg Hesperides" 1708/13. as a second title.

Arethusa was one of the hesperides (nymphs) in Greek Mythology. She was considered the guardian of citrus fruit. The Hesperides tend a “blissful garden" in the farthest western part of the (then known) world. There are various places named by antique historians and poets. The Canary Islands, however, were the farthest west known in the antique world. Other sources state north-west Africa (Atlas) to be the place.

The Hesperides were also called Heras's orchard in the west. There immortality-giving golden apples grew. One of Hercules' twelve labors was to bring back the Golden Apples from the Garden of the Hesperides.

Volckamer adorned his stunning garden book with citrus fruit (in Nuremberg and in Northern Italy). This engraving of great beauty is a title page in his work, dedicated to Arethusa. The nymph is sitting in the Hesperide Garden holding a citrus fruit in her hand. Two winged putti by her feet on either side of a basket full of citrus fruit.. A classical garden with fountains is the scene behind, and in the far distance lively traffic of sailships.

Left and right margins have been widened. Some very minor traces of age and use. Image very good!

Fountains of Rome

Copper etchings designed and engraved by Gio. Francesco Venturini from:

"Le Fontane Ne' Palazzi e Ne' Giardini di Roma,
con li Loro Prospetti et Ornamenti".

by Giovanni Battista Falda, 1691

Looking at these pages of elegant fountains gives us the feeling of an enviable life-style in and around Rome. There is no other place on earth where the opulence of garden architecture becomes more apparent. A deep longing for Mediterranean class and beauty fills our hearts and makes us wish to be there. For those of us who are - unhappily - not citizens of the eternal city this glimpse provides some consolation. At least we may surround ourselves with these prints by using them for decoration of our homes, a veritable joy!

Most of these prints bear a desirable patina of age. There is some miniscule, totally undisturbing spotting, browning along margin edges and a curious worm, who has visited the plates, has been so kind as to drill his path only in the lower margin, far away from platemark and image. The few exceptions will be mentioned, as will be any other minor damage. Otherwise the condition of these prints is VERY GOOD.

Page size: 26.8 x 41.4 cm (11.3 x 16.3 ")
Plate size (includes title) given below each image.

At the bottom of the page are some love park and garden prints in fine, modern hand coloring.

Copper etching (printed in sepia color) by Lucas Jocaob Ulmer after the drawing by Mathaeus Merian. Augsburg, ca. 1700.

From 2 Samuel, Chapter 11 in which David commits adultery with Bathsheba . The story of David's seduction of Bathsheba is omitted in Chronicles. The story is told that David, while walking on the roof of his house, saw Bathsheba, who was then the wife of Uriah, bathing in her garden. He immediately desired her and made her pregnant.

In an effort to conceal his sin, David summoned Uriah from the army (with whom he was on campaign) in the hope that Uriah would re-consummate his marriage and think that the child is his. Uriah was unwilling to violate the ancient kingdom rule applying to warriors in active service.[2] Rather than go home to his own bed, he preferred to remain with the palace troops.

Clean print. A vertical crease, only very faintly visible from the front. Otherwise excellent.
