We are delighted to offer engravings from the dynamic and exceedingly rare work of George Andreas Bockler (1648-1685), “Architectura Curiosa Nova” published in 1664 in Nuremberg, Germany. Bockler, a German architect and engineer from Nuremberg was fascinated with water-raising devices, mills and other industrial machinery, fountains and all things mechanical, especially machines with many gears and complex moving parts. The fourth part of “Architectura Curiosa Nova” has intricate designs for garden pavilions and garden paths, including illustrations of palaces in Europe.

Each engraving has been hand-colored by our professional Britain colorists. They are strongly rendered on soft white, chain-lined paper that is in excellent condition for a work that is now almost 350 years of age. There is no foxing and the engravings are very strong, with remarkably beautiful images. The measurements are approximately 9 by 13 inches and a copy of the frontispiece accompanies each print. It is truly a wonderful work that not only has historical and scientific value, but presents these beautiful feats of engineering and architecture in a superbly decorative manner.
