Description: Antique print titled 'A view of Amsterdam tacken from the Old Rampart'. Beautiful view of 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.
