After Johannes STRADANUS
11 (of 104) engravings, 20,6 x 26,2 cm, laid paper, signed in plate (somewhat toned, some foxing, some minor tears without loss to image).
From the series "Venationes Ferarum, Avium, Piscium", designed by Stradanus (Jan van der Straet), and first printed in Antwerp by Philippe Galle. The plates are dedicated to hunting, taking place on various continents, with animals as exotic as leopards but also other, more traditional types of hunting, like the hunting with hounds, the pigeon hunt or rabbiting. The plates are cut by Jan Collaert, Adriaen Collaert and Charles de Mallery.
