De twee groote Synagogen der Hoogduitsche Jooden, en het Oude-Zyds-Huiszitten-Aalmoesseniers-Huis, van agteren, in 't verschiet 

The print depicts a view over the Muidergracht (now part of the Jonas Daniel Meijerplein) to the Hoogduitse-and Nieuwe Synagogen, the entrance of the new Amstelstraat, the Oudezijds Huiszittenhuis and the outbuildings of the Portuguese synagogue in Amsterdam

Deliniated by Jan de Beijer ( 1703 - 1780 ); Published by Isaak Tirion in Jan Wagenaar's work Amsterdam in zijne Opkomst, Aanwas, Geschiedenissen, etc. (Tranlated: Amsterdam, its rise, growth and history). This monumental work outlined the new building and growth of Amsterdam in the Golden Age. 

An original uncoloured copper engraving from 1765.  Plate (impression) size is 31cm x 27.5cm. 

The impression is clear and heavy. The paper clean and in good condition. There is a fold to the centre of the work (from the binding). Slight darkening to the edges of the sheet. A very small closed tear to the edge of the paper. Overall a very nice, uncoloured copy of this early view of Amsterdam.
