The following series of portraits derives from

“Theatrum Europaeum" in which Matthaeus Merian (1593

Basel - Bad Schwalbach 1650) described the historical

events of an entire century: From 1618 to 1718 in 21

substantial volumes. That century was a century of

wars, mainly the “Thirty Years War" which swept over

Central Europe from 1618 to 1648. The portraits here

shown and offered for sale are depicting personalities

especially from that time period.

The copper engravings are on the full book page. The

portraits are surrounded by ever the same decorative

bordure. The portraits are in oval shape surrounded

with a band carrying name, title or titles of the

person shown.

The prints are clean and in much better than good

condition. Some prints have a few minor spots, light toning and wrinkles. Any major faults or blemishes are separately mentioned with each print.

Backside is printed and in some cases shows lightly through on frontside.

 

Page size: Ca. 31 x 20 cm (12 x 8")

Portrait size (unless given), measured within the bordure: Ca. 16 x

10.5 cm (6.3 x 3.1").

The first print shows how the images are placed on a complete page. All others are like this one.
