.. Antique Print of Batavia Castle by Probst (c.1770)

Description: Antique print titled 'Vue a Batavie du côte de la Courtine du Château - Prospect zu Batavia längst der Courtine des Castels'. Scarce view of Batavia Castle, present day Djakarta, Indonesia. This is an optical print, also called 'vue optique' or 'vue d'optique', which were made to be viewed through a Zograscope, or other devices of convex lens and mirrors, all of which produced an optical illusion of depth.
