Splendid view of the siege of Nyborg in November 1659. The scene depicts a battle in the war between Denmark and Sweden, in which the Dutch were allies of the Danes. The bird's-eye view shows the walled city with an army marching to her defense and the harbor filled with ships engaged in battle. Title in ribbon style cartouche.


Condition: B+

A nice impression on a watermarked sheet with very light foxing and toning along the edges of the sheet. A centerfold separation that enters 1/2" into image at bottom has been archivally repaired.

Estimate: $160 - $190
