Comments: This view depicts the Austrian town of Innsbruck. Published circa 1740, the print shows the town in the distance, with the Inn River and Inn Bridge visible. A large decorative cartouche in the foreground features the town's coat of arms surrounded by symbols of learning and military might. A number of people ride horses and carriages in the valley surrounding the town. A numbered key at the bottom identifies important sites and buildings. The print is in good condition with no chips or tears, minor foxing and browning, and some stains in the margin. Friedrich Bernhard Werner (1690-1776) was well-known for his engravings of European cities.

Thanks for the note. I'm actually in NY for a few days and was hoping to get there but have to head back tomorrow. I've been stopping by the Argosy for over 60 years starting when my mother would take me there after shopping at Bloomingdale's and lunch at a long gone restaurant on the east side of Lexington between 58th and 59th that was torn down to make way for Alexander's department store; that is gone too, of course. - Peter H.
