Hollar – Kratochvil, Milos V. Hollar’s Journey on the Rhine. Prague 1965. Sm. 4to. 26 pp., 44 unpag. ll. With 45 (1 folded + double full-page each, some full-page, otherwise half-full-page) ills. in color. Orig. cloth with ills. fly-leaves and gilt stamped signature on front cover.
Very fine reproduction on carton of the 25 drawings of the Prague National Gallery to the 1636 nine-month journey to Prague with Lord Arundel, several of which with additional detail illustrations and two of their sailing-vessel. Supplemented by five Rhenish drawings worked already between 1629 + 1635 the set here documents also stations on Main + Danube and closes with the large view of Prague as likewise only the one of Mayence. The estimates of the total number of the drawings worked during this travel reaches till over one hundred, but in the meantime c. seventy are seen as rather realistically.
