[Original Copper engraving/kopergravure] The Cathedral of Our Lady in Antwerp/De Onze-Lieve-Vrouwekathedraal in Antwerpen.
Appeared in the 1612 edition and later of Guicciardini’s “Beschryvinghe of all the Netherlands; (…)”, this plate numbered as “6” on the bottom right represents the Cathedral of our Lady in Antwerp. Some citizens on the bottom right are conversing with a cripple sitting in front of the church. Titled above in a panel held by two angels “TEMPLE D. VIRGINIS / MARIAE VERA DEINEATIO”. Therefore, this is the second version of the plate (Antwerpen-Kathedraal 3.2 in Guicciardini Illustratus, p. 137) which appeared at first in the 1612 Blaeu Dutch edition, until Janssonius’ in 1648.
Copper engraving on paper with margins; plate mark: 237 x 318 mm, total: 258 x 346 mm; state II/2; two pages joined together in the middle. On verso transfer traces of fresh ink due to the piling of sheets after pressing. Watermark with foolscap on the right.
