ca. 1616 – Utrecht – 1690

The Months. Landscapes with Figures, after ABRAHAM BLOEMAERT

Published by Nicolaes Visscher I

engravings; each plate ca. 129 x 168 mm (5 1/16 x 6 5/8 inches)

Hollstein 249-261

Watermark: Seven Provinces

The months January, May and October with the names of the months under the depiction but before the address of Visscher.
These states are not known to Hollstein. The other engravings in the second (final) state.

The set is offered without the title-page which is unnumbered in the catalogues, “as the weak composition suggests it was not made by Bloemaert but rather designed by Visscher when he published the series.”

Homogenous, magnificent copies. Most with small margins around the plate.

Rare complete set
