Recueil de cent paysages. Inventées, et gravées à l’eau-forte par Aldert van Everdingen
Amsterdam, P. van de Boom, 1696 (fictitious imprint)
The Recueil de cent paysages is a nearly-complete collection of Allart van Everdingen’s landscape etchings, supplemented by two complementary etchings by Adriaen Hendricksz. Verboom, a “frontispiece” devised by another printmaker, and letterpress title with imprint “Amsterdam… 1696”, a clumsy attempt to make the restruck prints seem near-contemporary. Judging by the paper evidence, the prints were issued circa 1810-1820, during a period when Everdingen had numerous followers, and his prints were commanding high prices in the market. Only one other complete copy is recorded (Rijksmuseum Research Library, Amsterdam).
