Title: Les Miseres et les Malheurs Author: Callot, Jacques Place: Paris Publisher: Date: 1633 Description: 18 engraved plates, including title leaf. Illustrations approximately 9x19.5 cm (3½x7½"), mounted to larger leaves, approximately 19x31 cm (7½x12¼"). Third State. Jacques Callot (1592–1635) was a baroque printmaker and draftsman from the Duchy of Lorraine.

He also etched many religious and military images, and many prints featured extensive landscapes in their background. The prints of "The Miseries and Misfortunes of War" show soldiers pillaging and burning their way through towns, country and convents, before being variously arrested and executed by their superiors, lynched by peasants, or surviving to live as crippled beggars. At the end the generals are rewarded by their monarch. Lot Amendments Condition: Disbound, mounting leaves brittle, a few prints with tears at corners; sold as is. Item number: 270485
