Description: Antique print titled 'Prospect von der Bastion Perl langst der Courtine des Castells Batavia / Vue de la Bastion Perl de Batavie.' View of the Parel Bastion (Pearl Bastion) of Castle Batavia, 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. 

Artists and Engravers: Francois Xavier Habermann (1721-1796), German engraver. Published at: Negoce comun de l'Academie Imperiale d'Empire des Arts libereaux.
