Title : Vue de la Rue des Recolets dans la haute Ville de Quebec - Prospect der Strasse, gegen der Kirche der Recolecten in der obern Stadt zu Quebec..
Map maker : HABERMANN, F. X..
Date : Augsburg, c1780.
Size : 12.0 x 16.1 inches. / 30.5 x 41.0 cm.
Colouring : Original colours.

Description :Curious optical print of Quebec, showing a street scene with soldiers and pedestrians.

'In considering the fictitous views of Canada, made up wholly from the imagination of engravers assisted by what they had heard from travellers, the names of François Xavier Habermann and Balthazar Freric Leeizelt... easily come first. Their Collection of Prospects was completely the product of a fertile imagination... quite unassisted by fact. The astonished collector comes across these well-drawn.... coloured etchings, having the strange peculiarity of the title et the top of the print reading backwards [as with the present image]... These prints were probably published about 1775. Habermann's views of New York, done about the same time are equally fictitious'." (Spendlove The Face of Early Canada p.83)

Condition : A good and attractive example. Light creasing. Wide margins with some staining.


ID: 93399
