Article description

Original antique copper engraving, hand colored in outline and wash when published. Large, old colored copper engraving with numerous illustrations of the siege and war technique by Johann Baptist Homann. These include various war equipment such as cannons, mortars, battle axes, different types of ships, and terrain sketches with positions. Published in Nuremberg around 1720. The impressive sheet was occasionally linked to the large Atlas by Homann Atlas novus terrarum orbis imperia regna et status exactis tabulis geographice demonstrans, but is very rare to find. Johann Christoph Weigel, known as Christoph Weigel the Elder (9 November 1654 – 5 February 1725), was a German engraver, art dealer and publisher. He was born at Redwitz, Free imperial city of Eger in Egerland, and died in Nuremberg, aged 70. The cartographer Weigel worked around 1719 in Nürnberg and his maps are showing the typical style of this period in map making in Southern German. He worked very close as with Johann B. Homann in Nürnberg. All his maps were hand colored in outline and decorative body color immediatelly in his printing house, after they were printed.
