- Curator's comments
This is plate 196 from the series ‘Europens Pracht und Macht in 200 Kupferstücken’, published by Gabriel Bodenehr in 1721-22 after Johann Stridbeck's plates, but the number had been trimmed. For a comment on the series, see 1898,0725.8.1931.
This is one of Bodenehr's best works; it may be a copy of an earlier view of the city by Merian.

- Acquisition notes
- The group of prints registered under 1898,0725.1 to 8 was recorded as being given by Franks, although it was registered a year after his death. This is because the prints were already in the BM in 1897 as a proposed gift. But they are recorded here as having being bequeathed by him.
