This impressive engraving is a wonderful example of Chatelain’s elegant plates. Included in the 1720 edition of Atlas Historique, published by Chatelain in Amsterdam, this large chart is the twenty-sixth plate in volume two. This handsome plate is comprised of a large central vignette depicting a session of the German parliament. The Emperor is seated at the back of the large hall with the government before him. The room is divided into nobility on one side and the heads of the church on the other. The sheet is filled with a long explanative text, as well as a detailed tabular key identifying the various people depicted in the images. This fine print is a wonderful example from Chatelain’s important text. Maps
