Attractive copperplate engraving showing the Free Imperial City of Heilbronn in Germany. The view shows a bridge across the river Neckar in the foreground, with many towers, churches, fortifications and more visible throughout the city.
Heilbronn suffered heavily during the 30 Years' War, but retained its independent status for most of the 17th and 18th centuries, minus some French incursions. It would become part of Wurttemberg in 1802.
This view was published by Pierre Aveline, one of the foremost viewmakers of the first part of the 18th century.
