Attractive etching from the 18th century ( ca 1776 ). Engraved by Francois Xavier Habermann

Perspective Views or Vues D'Optique were popular in the 18th – 19th century. They have been viewed through optical machines, some were called zograscopes and one could enjoy those at “ peepshows “.

Not only are they of historical importance they are a visual delight too.

This one has an inscription in Germany and French and we learn that what we see on this Vues d’optique is “ the main street with a Chinese Arc d’ triumph. And that it is the 12th of the 15 Chinese provinces, Guangdong, that it is the town where the viceroi lives, that it is located next the river Ta and that it is a rich town because of flourishing trade ”.

17 in x 12.5 in, minor foxing, minor aging. Scarce.
