Article descriptionOriginal antique copper engraving, uncolored as published. This beautiful copperplate engraving shows the city of Bensheim. Bensheim is in the southern Hessian district of Bergstrasse. Today it is the largest city in the district with more than 40,000 inhabitants. Outside the illustration is a small description and next to it the coat of arms of the city. 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 (1664-1758 or 1673-1765) was a German map maker and member of a famous engraver and publisher family of Augsburg. His main work was "Atlas Curieux" first published 1704. He was the son of Johann Georg Bodenehr (1631-1703). Gabriel's son was Gabriel Bodenehr the Younger (1705–1792).
