Description: Antique print titled 'Vuë de la Maison de Ville, l'Eglise neuve et le Poids sur le Dam'. Beautiful view of the 'Dam' square and city hall 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: Engraved by J.B. Winkler after S. Fokke.
