GERLACH, Philipp (1679--1748)
Façade de la tour et de l'eglise de Jerusalem à Berlin. Inv. p. Gerlach ...
Augsburg hæred. Jerem. Wolff excudit Aug. Vind., [173-?].
4 engr. pl. ; 50.4 cm. (2º)

Title, credit and imprint from pl. 1, being followed by a side elevation (pl. 2), section (pl. 3) and plan (pl. 4). All four plates also credit C.H. Horst as draughtsman and J.G. Ringle ('Ringlen') as engraver. Gerlach's Jerusalem Church was built 1726--28, but this undated suite is closely related to others on Gerlach's buildings published by Wolff's heirs (who were in business from 1724 until at least 1748), and may not have appeared until the following decade. See entry for C.H. Horst, Plan general de la maison ... de Schulemburg, and see also J.G. Pinz, Plan general de la maison ... de Marschall, with which the present work is here bound. Berlin Kat. 2132 groups this and the suite on the Firedrichshospital and its church (q.v.) with a suite of three plates on an 'Eglise Paroissale' by Gerlach.
