At the top of the print an inlet view titled ‘de Vis tegend de Rug te Zien’ showing the stranded whale seen from the back.

2.: Cagelot Vis gestrand tussen Zandvoort en Wijk aan Zee, 1762.
Full title on the print: ‘dese Cagelot Vis lang 64 Voet, is Gestrand tussen Zantvoord en Wyk op Zee, den 20. Feb. 1762, op’t Strand in Openbaare Vyling Verkogt den 5 maart voor 900 Guldens, naar’t Leven Getekend den 21 febr. en vervolgens in ’t Koper gebragt door C. V. Noorde.

Engraved broadsheet by Cornelius van Noorde. Oblong folio engraving on copper, image size (210x230) on full leaf (230x360 mm.).

Main image with lots of onlookers gathered around the carcass of the whale stranded at the beach between Zandvoort and Wijk aan Zee (NL) With a few coaches in the background and fishermen already working at the carcass. Inlet view at the bottom of the print shows the back of the stranded whale seen from the back: ‘de Vis van agteren’.
Both prints are extremely rare; neither is being offered anywhere at all at the moment. Especially the broadsheet of the 1762 Zandvoort stranding (2) is most rare. The only public collection where this print can be found is at Rijksmuseum Amsterdam. Offered her are both Van Noorde prints together as a pair.

Cornelis van Noorde (1731, Haarlem – 1795, Amsterdam), was an 18th-century landscape painter and draughtsman from the Northern Netherlands. He made drawings, water colors, etchings, engravings, and charcoal sketches who seemed to draw whatever he saw wherever he was.
