Engraved by Arnold van Westerhout. Published by Stampano alli Cesarini in Rome and sold by Remondini in Venice. These plates appear to have been made shortly after the battles and years before the famous paintings by Jan van Huchtenburgh (1647-1733).
Arnold van Westerhout (1651-1725) originated from Antwerp, but spent a large part of his life in Rome as an engraver and publisher.
These views are apparently very rare we have not been able to locate any other examples.
