The publishing history for De Bye's etchings after Paulus Potter is well documented. Rare first state impressions lack the address of N. Visscher on the frontis-piece plate and were printed in only a handful of impressions. In the second state impressions Nicolaas Visscher's name appears. This major publisher printed editions of De Bye's sets from approximately 1660 to 1700. In 1726 Petrus Schenk acquired the plates and printed sets bearing his name along the lower margins of the frontis piece etchings. The etchings offered here below are from a state before the added address of Schenk and published by Visscher..
