Title : Henricus III. D. G. Galliae Et Poloniae Rex Christianiss..
Map maker : DE CLERCK, N..
Date : Amsterdam, Cloppenburch, 1621.
Size : 7.1 x 4.7 inches. / 18.0 x 12.0 cm.

Description :The engraving depicts a half length oval portrait of Henry III (1551-1589) of France and Poland.
Henry III is facing left, wearing a hat adorned with a brooch, a pear-shaped earring, and a buttoned doublet, in a lettered oval.
The portrait derives from a portrait of which several versions are known, the original design has been attributed to François Quesnel.

Henry III was a monarch of the House of Valois who was elected the monarch of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth from 1573 to 1575 and ruled as King of France from 1574 until his death. He was the last French monarch of the Valois dynasty.
As the fourth son of King Henry II of France and Catherine de' Medici, Henry was not expected to assume the throne of France. He was thus a good candidate for the vacant Polish throne, and he was elected with the dual titles King of Poland and Grand Duke of Lithuania.
Henry's rule over Poland was brief, but notable. The Henrician Articles he signed into law accepting the Polish throne established Poland as an elective monarchy subject to free election by the Polish nobility. Of his three older brothers, two would live long enough to ascend the French throne, but both died young and without a legitimate male heir. He abandoned Poland upon receiving word that he had inherited the throne of France at the age of 22.Nicolaes de Clerck (de Klerc) was active as engraver and publisher in Delft from 1599-1621.

Included in the rare book : Wereld Spiegel, waer in vertoontword de Beschryvinge der Rijken Staten, ende vorstendommen des gantsen Aerdbodems… which was a Dutch translation of "Les estats, empires et principautez de monde" by Pierre Davity.

Condition : Copperplate engraving on text leaf with Dutch letterpress. Size of paper : 315 x 205mm.
