None of the consulted bibliographies on hunting seem to know this work
A very scarce and attractive suite of engravings on hunting published by F. de Wit. There is no engraver mentioned. F. de Wit is most likely Frederick de Wit, a well known Amsterdam map publisher. None of the consulted bibliographies on hunting seem to know this work, which must have been published around 1700. The beautifully engraved title page shows a.o. several hunting dogs, a shot gun and a pair of antlers, 2 plates show several types of hunting dogs, 4 plates show horns, bow and arrows, a spear, 4 plates show hunted animals such as deer and boar, and one plate shows deer hunting. A copy with very large margins and excellent impressions, 2 plates with slight marginal repair.
