La Perspective ou raison des ombres et du miroir.
Salomon de Caus
Solomon de Caus was the Prince's Drawing Master. All we know of him is that in 1612, the year of the Prince's death, he published a book intituled La Perspective ou raison des ombres et du miroir. with several engraved plates. It is addressed from Richmond Palace to Prince Henry, after he had been, as he tells his Highness, two or three years in his service.
