Early 18th-century Dutch engraving of the mountain of Potosí. 18½" x 16½". This is an oft-repeated and somewhat fanciful scene of the silver mountain of Potosí with palm tree and large windmill in the foreground and others in the distance (neither of which had anything to do with Potosí), with fortress at the top of the mountain, POTOSI printed at bottom, the scene copied from a popular ca.-1680 engraving. Excellent condition.
