Title: Vue de la Basilique Batie a Constantinople par l'Empereur Iustinien
This striking vue d'optique of a street in Constantinople with a Basilica built by the emperor Justinian in the foreground. The street is filled with activity. The view was designed to be viewed in a special apparatus that gave the scene a strong 3-D impression. The title at top is engraved in reverse with captions engraved at bottom for use outside the viewer. These views are some of the most distinctive and interesting images of the eighteenth century, and their distinctive engraving style, striking perspective and bright original color makes them as visually delightful as they are historically fascinating.     (id:81639/122-694)
