Description: Antique print titled 'Leeuwarden - Gezigt in den Stads- of Prinsentuin'. Old print of the Prinsentuin in Leeuwarden, Friesland. The Prinsentuin was originally part of the city defense walls. When the Dutch 80 year independence war was over in 1648, the defense walls became superfluous and were turned into a private garden for the ruling Nassau family, hence the name “Princes’ garden”. This print originates from 'Twaalf Gezigten op de Voornaamste Gebouwen en beplantingen Der Stad Leeuwarden, In Den Tegenwoordigen Tijd' by W. Eekhoff.
