Early 17th century wood engraved city view with lovely hand color. Text on reverse as issued.
Specific city appears to be Aachen although it could be someplace different. If you know we're happy to amend the listing and credit your info to you (if you'd like)
Remains a nice looking example with a pleasing age patina. Any age flaws mostly minor and easy to overlook or forgive. Uneven side blank margins of no significance.
