A lovely imagined view of ancient Babylon with the Tower of Babel. A procession of men with elephants, camels, and livestock fill the foreground. Published in Algemeene Histori, Beschreven door een Gezelschap van Geleerde Mannen in Engeland … IV Deel by Hermanus Besseling.
A nice impression, issued folding and now flattened. There are two short edge tears that just enter the image that were previously repaired with non-archival tape causing some stains, and the tape has since been removed and the tears repaired archivally.
