From a series of 117 numbered plates from the military drill manual, "Wapenhandelinghe van Roers Musquetten ende Speissen" (The Exercise of Arms). The series is divided into three sets: Marksmen (42 plates), Musketeers (43 plates), and Lansquenets (32 plates). The Exercise of Arms was first published as a complete volume in 1608, and several more editions followed shortly after, with Dutch, French, German, English, and Danish versions produced. This version (49.95.1110-1227) belongs to the German translation of the third edition (titled "Waffenhandlung von den Rören Musquetten undt Spiessen"), which was published in The Hague in 1608.
