¶ An unknown release. We found a small booklet with the box (Catalogus 115 [numbered] prenten Amsterdam, H.D. Pfann, ca 1965). Our set is missing the prints numbered 6, 25a, 26a, 37, 41, 42, 47, 54, 56, 75, 78a, 84, 85 and 86 in this small catalogue. From the foreword by Isabella van Eeghen:
"The art seller Pierre Fouquet (1729-1800) had Jan de Beyer depicting the city from 1760 to 1783. The prints were described in Dutch and French and were sold individually or in series. Around 1780 Fouquet had a table of contents printed for 100 prints. " Presumably our set holds those 100 prints complete.
