An engraving by Austrian engraver Kleiner, Salomon of the gardens of lustshloss “Favorite”.
The first engraving is dated between 1723-1726, and called ” Un grand Boulingrain borde des Marroniers”. and in German: “Ein groses Boulingrain mit kastanien baumen belest”. 
A big bassin shaped garden and border planted with chestnut trees.
On this nice engraving we see a group of people strolling and enjoying a wonderful, 18th century garden. This garden is probably located in Mainz next to the Rhine river and called “ Lustschloss Favoriteand also just “Favorite”.
This was the location of a German castle with huge gardens, meant to please the eye and entertain with huge Baroque gardens and water games.The whole complex was build between 1700 and 1730. Luckily, there is a lot of information about this Castle and eventually its destruction so you can enjoy the rich history behind this engraving. A lot of information is also available about the maker, Salomon Kleiner.
The engraving is printed on laid paper and framed behind glass in a simple black frame with a cream colored matte. The print measures: 28 x 19,5 cm. The condition of this engraving is excellent.
 
Verso, we find glued to the same paper a very old engraving from France.

The second engraving is made in Paris by the publisher Basset, ca. 1760

In the lower middle of the plate we find the text A Paris chez Basset rue st Jacques a Se Genevieve.

The plate was colored sloppy and has some tears. I believe it was colored after publication. The margins on the right side have been trimmed. The engraving was printed on laid paper and measures 39,5 x  39 cm. It was glued onto a piece of paper. This engraving also has a history to tell, mainly about Europe’s interference and arguing over the Moghuls empire in India and the founding of several European Trading Compagnies in India, aiming at the gain of land and setting up economical trade of spices, sugar and other Indian riches to Europe.
