In 1880, the artists father and son van Looy made an elaborately detailed and delicately executed set of lithographs, drawn on stone, of practically the entire booty. The prints were pulled by the famous stone-lithographers firm of S. Lankhout & Co., of The Hague, and published in 1881 by Publisher Gouda Quint, of Arnhem. Beautifully decorative. Scarce.
