From the southern end of Germany
come these beautiful prints of castles and townships
published in Historico-topographica Description
by Michael Wening. His numerous detailed engravings
have provided a picturesque view of the Baroque era,
bringing long-lost castles and townships back to life.
Born in Nuremberg, Wening was
appointed Munich’s court engraver in 1669. His
concept was to publish a visual account of Bavaria’s four
districts and he received permission from the duke,
Maximilian Emanuel, to begin work on the project in
1696. He finished more than 100 drawings within the
first two months. The first volume appeared in 1701,
but work on the other three volumes was delayed in part
by Austria’s occupation of Bavaria. At least one volume
was published after his death in 1718.
Each of Wening’s illustrations is
set on chain lined, creamy paper, richly hand-colored to
bring out the lively detail that makes the images so
appealing. Each print very large, measuring approximately 29 inches
by 12 ¼ inches. The condition of these prints is very for a work that is
almost 300 years old. The photos are very accurate, so please review carefully.
