In front of the broad view of the place the customs castle on the rocks in the river. Above the vineyards the ruin of Gutenfels. On the street on our side three ramblers.

Jügel.), caption as above in German-French parallel text. 9 × 12⅛ in (22.8 × 30.9 cm).

In its nervous line conduct ahead of its time ,

unmistakably, and instantaneously lithographed after own sketch, and thus “standing out highly advantageously from the leaves of much smaller size engraved after him by other artists … Lasinsky’s ‘sensibility, keenest power of observation, realistic study of nature, and talent for large wide landscapes’ have been praised” (Schulte 1969). – Pfalzgrafenstein Castle was built as toll castle by Emperor Louis the Bavarian in 1326.
