Strange and Wondrous: Prints of India from the Robert J. Del Bontà Collection

The location of publication

The fifty prints in Strange and Wondrous can be mapped by space, language, and time. Images and texts were copied primarily in Europe but also in India and North America. They were translated between Latin, Dutch, English, French, German, and Italian, and consistently printed and reprinted from the sixteenth to the twentieth century.
