Johann Wilhelm Archenholz

Johann Wilhelm Archenholz (1741-1812), a native of Danzig, was a Professor of History and a publicist. His book about the history of the Seven Years of Silesian War (1756-63) was the basis for many reprints, as well as for school books. Archenholz commissioned a Berlin artist, Johann Friedrich Bolt[?], to produce a copper etching for Archenholz's History of Gustav Vasa of the famous Swedish Nobility.
