Gheyn, Jacques de, 1565-1629
Jacques de Gheyn, a Dutch artist, published hundreds of engravings of the kind copied by Henry Perronet Briggs. His lavishly illustrated book, The Exercise of Arms, published in 1607, was designed as a handbook of the infantry. Containing 117 designs that demonstrated the use of various weapons, the book coincided with the Dutch fight for independence from Spain.
