Views by Friedrich Berhard Werner. Germany: Martin Engelbrecht, 1730-40. ["Cum Priv. S.C. Maj."] Engravings by Johann Georg Ringlin. Images ca. 7 x 12, with German text below. Margined at top and bottom to make uniform size for binding. Overall, very good condition.

These wonderful eighteenth century German prints are after drawings by Friedrich Berhard Werner (1690-1778). Werner was an artist and an engraver who had studied in Breslau and travelled throughout Europe. Johann Georg Ringlin (or Ringle) was from Augsburg and lived from 1691 to 1761. The publisher, Martin Engelbrecht (1684-1756) was also from Augsburg and is listed in Benezit as the illustrator for P. Decker's Les Architectes princiers. These prints are very rare and the quality of them is excellent, with clear and detailed information, including numbered keys to the major sites in the cities depicted. The images are embellished with elaborate cartouches and vignettes of natives in the foreground.
