Notes

A French variant on De Jonghe’s view of London, with the verses underneath in a different type and the name of the Thames translated into French from Latin.

Jean Sauvé (1635–1692) was an engraver and publisher active in Paris, and known for re-engraving the works of others, including de Jonghe (as here), Merian, Tavernier, and Jollain.
