Antique print titled 'Die innere Aussicht des Castells in Batavia (..) - Vue interieure du Pallais de Batavie (..)'. View of the inner courtyard of the castle at Batavia, Indonesia. Beautiful optical print, also called 'vue optique' or 'vue d'optique', which were made to be viewed through a Zograscope, or other devices of convex lens and mirrors, all of which produced an optical illusion of depth. Published by Francois Xavier Habermann, circa 1770.
Entitled: Die Innere Aufsicht des Castells in Batavia nebst der Schloss Kirche. / Vuë interieure du Pallais de Batavie avec l'Eglise du Chateau
