Incisione - Firmato su lastra - 1660

Very rare French Edition.

An early seventeenth century view of volcanic activity in the Campi Flegre, one of the earliest engravings on the subject, taking the same vantage point as Braun & Hogenberg's 'Mirabilium Sulphureorum Motium Apud Puteolos campos' published at the end of the sixteenth century. The print depicts a number of curious tourists and travellers looking at the smoking fumaroles of the Sulfatara Volcano. Solfatara is a shallow volcanic crater at Pozzuoli, near Naples, and is part of the volcanic area known as the Phlegraean Fields. It is dormant, and was for centuries a popular tourist destination.

Leaf: 33.7 x 23 cm

Aegidius Sadeler (c. 1570-1629) was a Flemish baroque era painter and engraver; the best (Hind) of a notable dynasty of engravers, who were also significant as dealers and distributors of prints. He spent most of his career based in Prague where Emperor Rudolf II commissioned many of his works.

Very good condition. Stab marks to outer margin from binding. Recent hand colour. Very light spotting to margins.
