1600: Jan Collaert I
Website of the Metropolitan Museum of Art: ‘Title plate from a print series entitled Nova Reperta (= New Inventions of Modern Times) consisting of a title page and 19 plates, engraved by Jan Collaert I, after Jan van der Straet, called Stradanus, and published by Philips Galle.’ It is dated ‘circa 1600’.
The online collection of the British Museum describes: ‘This is the title-page from a series of twenty prints illustrating new inventions and discoveries after Jan van der Straet (for a complete set see 1948,0410.4.191-209). The series was commissioned by the Alamanni family and originally published by Philips Galle. This edition was later published by his son, Theodor Galle. Hollstein states that 10 plates in the series were engraved by Philips Galle, and 10 by Hans Collaert.’
The catalogue of the Plantin Moretus Museum states that the graveur is Karel van Mallery.
