Vues d'Optique
During the 1770s and 1780s, two German engravers created a number of popular 'vues d'optique', a special kind of print designed to be viewed with an optical device called a zograscope. While creating views of North American cities, they based their designs on preexisting views of European cities. These fictitious views likely served their purpose as visual entertainments rather than accurate depictions of real places.
