Prints

Sometimes considered to be a trial proof from a series of 15 views around Haarlem.
Christiaan Schuckman, author of the Hollstein catalogue, considers it an independent plate and has never seen an impression bearing printed inscriptions. The consistent numbering (14) on various impressions suggests that at an early date this was considered an addendum to the series of 12 Views in the Surroundings of Haarlem (Hollstein xxxvii.240.1-12).
Nagler and Le Blanc attributed the plate to Izaak van der Vinne.

Inscription
