A South German 17th Century Ebony and Ivory Games Board

Augsburg, ca. 1630

By the workshop of Ulrich Baumgartner

The engravings show the newest natural scientific depictions of insects, bugs, butterflies, grasshoppers and spiders of the style sheets by Virgil Solis and the 1592 in Frankfurt first published work of Georg Hofnagel ‘Archetypa Studia Patris’.
