NANCY ca 1650 -- [PRINT]. DERUET, Claude. "La Carriere ou Rue Neuve, ou se font Les Combats de Barriere. Courses de Bague. Joustes Tournois..." [Nancy, n.d.]. Etching and engraving, 277 x 373 platemark, thread margins (two small old repairs on verso).
A very rare bird's-eye view of the jousts and equestrian games famously held in the Carriere in Nancy. Meaume notes that this print often appears in Le Triomphe de Charles IV, Duke of Lorraine (1604-1675) but it was probably produced twenty or thirty years later. Meaume, Deruet, no. 5 (apparently second state, with word "guerier" in smaller letters on first line of upper right cartouche).
