Matthaeus Merian was one of, if not the most important Swiss engraver from the 17th-century. He created maps and city plans in conjunction with other German geographers, and many of these illustrations would appear in ‘Theatrum Europaeum’ – the best 17th-century periodical on the history of German-speaking lands. This journal is filled with impressive engravings – mainly portraits and maps – and features articles and essays pertaining to a specific time period in Europe.

 

This volume of ‘Theatrum Europaeum’ covers the years 1633-1638 and was written by Heinrich Oraeus. And while the essays are notable, it is the illustrations that make this work such a desirable piece. Matthaeus Merian’s engravings are still popular today for many reasons, but his influence on future illustrators, such as Wenceslas Hollar, was lasting.
