Description: Antique print titled 'Der Herren Graben von der Spiegel Straß sehent nach dem Leidischen Graben zu Amsterdam'. Beautiful view of the 'Herengracht' in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. 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: Georg Balthasar Probst (1732 - 1801) was a German artist, engraver and publisher in Augsburg.
