The Princeton University Library was the recipient of 1986 graduate Bruce Willsie's collection of 155 engravings, from the GeschichtsblÃÂ¤tter (History Sheets) published between 1570 and 1610. The engravings, by Franz and Abraham Hogenberg depict the Eighty Years War of 1568-1648, and have been made accessible online by the Princeton University Library Digital Collections. Visitors should click on the "Collection Images" link in the middle of the homepage to access the detailed images. The images are shown one by one as the default, but can also be viewed as thumbnails by clicking on the button with the grid on it, below the written menu. Although the titles of each engraving are in Dutch, the descriptions are in English. Each engraving of a scene from the War depicts a distinct event, and offers much for visitors to peruse with abundant detail. Visitors should not miss zooming in on any of the images to see them in detail. Users can use the cross of double-headed arrows to interact with the image as well. Item 147, "Arnheim/Knodsenbrug/Nijmwegen" is a great example of the engraving skills involved in the depiction of the soldiers' uniforms and equipment.
