The Treveszaal in The Hague [de Treveszaal in Den Haag], in the Binnenhof. This astonishingly beautiful room was originally erected for the negotiations during the Eighty Years’ War. Nowadays it hosts the meetings of the Dutch Cabinet.

Titled below: ‘TREVES-KAMER VAN HAAR HOOGMOG. DE STATEN GENERAAL DER VEREENIGDE NEDERLANDEN.’ A legend with names referring to the letters in the plate. Signed at bottom, with the address of the publisher;  ‘M Terwesten, en G. v. Giessen del. / I.C. Philips fecit direx. / R. Boitet excud cum Privileg.’

Curious ghost print towards the bottom of the page, as the plate was folded to fit a publication.

Print included in: Jacob de Riemer’s ‘Beschryving van ‘s-Graven-Hage…’ published in Delft and Den Haag, 1730-1739.
