The story of the seven infantes of Lara
(Historia de los siete infantes de Lara / Historia septem infantium de Lara)

Excellent early impressions with al ldetais and a lot of good plate tone. In the full sheet, a bit thumbed and spotted in the margins. Within plate border very good.

Doña Lambra orders a villager to strike Gonzalo Gomez with a cucumber drenched with blood after Otto van Veen. 1612 Etching

Each print has text on the left in Spanish and the same on the right in Latin. The legend of the Infantes of Lara, who lived in the tenth century, relates how these seven brothers were betrayed by their uncle and slain by the Moors but were afterwards avenged by their half-brother, the Bastard Mudarra, son of the Lord of Lara and a Moorish lady.
