- Curator's comments
- Amsterdam is suggested as place of publication, because the words "wt Amsterdam" appear after the text.
The print is damaged, missing at the top edge ca.50 x 40 mm.
This print is mentioned and described in a contemporary letter (1619), written by Sir Dudley Carleton, English ambassador to Holland. See Paas PA 88 and 89, notes on p.356 citing from 'Letters From and To Sir Dudley Carleton, Knt. During his Embassy in Holland from January 1615/6 to December 1620', London, 1757, p.309.
For a similar (original ?) version, without letterpress text, see BM 1873-7-12-123 and 1871-12-9-4767.
