Admirandorum quadruplex spectaculum (en) book of engravings by Petrus Schenk after Jan van Call (en); boek van Pieter Schenk (nl)

Around 1700 Johannes van Call made some 70 drawings of Rhine landscapes and Dutch cities. The Amsterdam publisher and engraver Petrus Schenk loved these views and selected 71 to be published in a book: Admirandorum quadruplex spectaculum. The prints shown here are the result of an experiment of early multi-colour printing as invented by Jan Teyler of Nijmegen. With this so called à la poupée-technique, the printing plates are inked in different colours and then printed in multi-colours in one print run.
