FRANCINI, Alessandro. [A superb early 17th century plan of Fontainebleau]
Portrait de la Maison Royale de Fontaine Belleau. French, c.1614. Engraving, Sheet 560 x 470mm. Trimmed within plate, as issued, a few small repairs.
A fine bird's-eye view of the royal palace of Fontainebleau, engraved by Michael Lasne after Alessandro Francini, with a 32-point key. Alessandro (d. 1648) and his older brother Tommaso (1571-1651), from Florence, were hydraulic engineers who work transformed French formal gardens with fountains and water-driven automata. Alexandre's engravings were instrumental in publicising the new styles.
