Allegorical print

Allegorical print for the celebration in Haarlem in 1823 of the fourth centennial showing a comemmorative pillar with the coat of arms of the city of Haarlem on top, in front of which (on the left) stands Koster pointing with his right hand to a tree with letters carved in its trunk, and in his left hand a letter "A" which he is showing to the Virgin of the Netherlands (on the far right). She in turn points toward an altar dedicated to immortality, upon which is being thrown incense by Religion (second from right). Engraving by D. Sluyter, after a drawing by H.P. Oosterhuis (1823).
