A so-called optical print showing a fanciful view of British troops disembarking at New York City. Built environment includes churches, dwellings, ships, and boats. Engraved by F.X. Habermann (1721-1796).

The Academie Imperiale was a well-known publisher of optical prints, established in Augsburg.
In the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries there were many popular specialty establishments in Paris, Augsburg and London, which produced optical viewing devices and special engravings to be viewed through them. In the 18th century the optical print or vue optique came into existence, whose exaggerated converging lines were intended to produce the optical illusion of deep recession. The viewing devices for which these perspective prints were produced consisted of a lens and a mirror, this requiring the use of reversed or mirror-image pictures. This picture however has top title not reversed. Uncommon.

See our special page about optical prints and peep shows.
