Frontispiece to the first edition of 'GEDICHTEN VAN JACOB ZEEUS', collection of poetry by Jakob Zeeus (1686-1718). A muse sitting on the left beside a grave, holding a lyre on her lap. Some putti at her feet playing with a book. Another putto hanging a laurel wreath on the grave. On the right a personification of a river and the ruins of a castle in the background. Above in the clouds a Fama playing a trumpet. The original plate was published as dating 1720 and bearing a different inscription on the grave.
