Beautifull engraving by Abraham de Bruyn showing inhabitants of Asian and African people with captions in Latin, French and German.
Abraham de Bruyn, a Flemish engraver and publisher, was born at Antwerp in 1538. In 1570 he was working in Breda, where he engraved series of illustrations for Christoph Plantin (e.g. engravings after Pieter van der Borcht IV and Crispijn de Passe I for the Humanes salutis monumenta of B. A. Montanus, 1571, Hollstein, nos 384-455, and engravings after van der Borcht for Officium B. Mariae Virginis, 1575. Hollstein, nos 32-5).
From 1577-c. 1580 Abraham was in Cologne, where he published a series of costumes from various countries and continents
He is ranked among the Little Masters, on account of his plates being usually very small. He engraved in the manner of Wierix. It is believed that he worked also as a goldsmith.
This print taken from his set of one hundred plates, entitled 'Imperii ac Sacerdotii Ornatus. Diversarum item Gentium peculiaris Vestitus.' 1577-78. Reissued, with some additional plates, and entitled "Omnium pene Europae, Asiae, Aphricae atque Americae Gentium Habitus." 1581.
