View of Amsterdam from the Kadjik
1642 c.
To the platemark 113 x 154 mm; sheet 123 x 166 mm

New Hollstein no. 203; Hind 176; Bartsch 210, only state

Very fine impression printed on laid paper with watermark foolscap with five-pointed collar (Hinterding A.a. 2° - K.a.b. 1640 c.).

In very good condition, with the reeds in the foreground and traces of ink in the platemark. Regular margins all around. The landscape is sharp and clear, with windmills in the background.

Eric Hinterding describes the recognizable landmarks from the left to right: the Haringspakkertoren, the Oude Kerk, the Montelbaanstoren, the warehouses and ships’ wharves of the Duch East India Company and the mills on Het Rijzenhoofd bulwark. (Hinterding, Lugt Collection, n.165, p.284).
