Description :Two charming late 17th century engravings of an Knight of Malta and an round portrait of Gregoire Carafa.

The copper plate seems during the printing process not well cleaned and there is ink spotting all over the plate and in the center. Two engraving are made on one copper plate and after the printing process separated.

By Allain Manneson Mallet (1630-1706), a well traveled military engineer and geographer who worked in 17th century France under King Louis XIV.
From the uncommon German text edition published by Johann David Zunners of Frankfurt.

Gregoire Carafa , of the Lange of Italy was elected Grand Master on the 2nd May 1680. The newly elected Grand Master, desirous of emulating his predecessor, at once devoted himself to the completion of the fortifications of Floriana and of the Cottonera Lines. Colonel Don Carlos de Grunenburg, chief engineer to the King of Spain, was consulted on the subject. The principal works, which appear to have been carried out under his superintendence were the construction of four batteries at the foot of Fort St. Angelo for the better protection of the grand harbor, and the fortifications around St. Elmo.

Several successful naval expeditions in the Levant took place during Carafa's rule, and the Emperor Leopold, in 1683, addressed a very flattering letter to the Grand. Master, thanking him most warmly for his continued efforts to protect Christendom from the incessant ravages of the Ottoman fleet.

In 1687 eight galleys of the Order under the command of Count Heberstein, Grand Prior of Hungary, greatly contributed to the successful issue of the day at Castel Nuovo, and by this last victory of the allied fleets the Moslems were finally driven from the Adriatic.

Carafa was attacked by a fierce and most malignant fever. He died, on the 21st July 1690, at the age of seventy-three, after a successful reign of ten years, during which period we find the most perfect tranquility reigning within the Convent, and Malta prospering under his fostering care.


Condition : Good margins. Very dark impression.
