Original antique copper engraving, uncolored as published. This fine engraving was published in Gabriel Bodenehr's famous serious,Europeans Macht und Pracht', a series of engravings depicting city views, plans, fortresses and castles in Europe. Many plates often are showing fortifications in Hungary and Southeast Europe, Spain, Belgium, Austria and Germany. Gabriel Bodenehr was during this period a successful publisher for maps and prints in Augsburg in Southern Germany. Gabriel Bodenehr the Elder (* 1664 in Augsburg; † 1758 there or * 1673; † 1765) was a German publisher, cartographer and engraver who created cityscapes of numerous German cities. His most famous work is the Atlas Curieux, first published in 1704. Around 1710, Bodenehr published the first engraved floor plan of the city of Passau entitled Floor plan of the sites of Passau, Innstatt and Ilzstatt by Johann Stridbeck the Younger. He came from the Bodenehr family of engravers. His father Johann Georg Bodenehr (1631–1704) was an engraver and publisher; his brothers Moritz (1665-1749) and Georg Conrad (1673-1710) and his son Gabriel Bodenehr the Younger (1705-1792) were also engravers.
