Gezicht op het stadhuis, langs de noordzijde en van agteren, en op den onvolbouwden tooren der Nieuwe Kerk

(translation) View of the town hall, along the north side and of the unfinished tower of the New Church

Deliniated by Paulus van Liender; 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 36.5cm x 28cm. 

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. Overall a very nice, uncoloured copy of this early view of Amsterdam. 

Paulus van Liender (1731-1797) was an 18th-century landscape painter and draughtsman from the Northern Netherlands. He often worked with Jan de Beijer
