Private collection

The engraving was published in Beschryvinge der stadt Delft by Dirck van Bleyswijk in Delft in 1667-80. It shows the Gemeenlandshuis (Communal Land House) in Delft. This impressive early-sixteenth-century townhouse was originally the home of Jan de Huyter, the collector of taxes on hops.
