Pair of copper engravings of Dutch soldiers after Jacob De Gheyn 's Arms and Armour, The Exercise of Arms, Plates 16 and 23, first published in The Hague in 1607. The publication was delayed as The Netherlands was at war and feared that access to this manual could give the enemy an advantage. A letter of provenance is included which shows that these engravings were purchased in 1958 in Rothenburg ob Tauber, Germany by a prominent Washington DC gentleman. Please take a moment to examine the close-up of the images in detail as their quality is outstanding. Paper is laid on linen backing, in very good condition with toning and minor imperfections as shown. Shipped fully insured with tracking number.
Measurements: Frames: 18" by 14" ; Paper: 14 3/8" by 10 1/2" (36.5 cm by 25.4) approximately.
