Answer
Dear John,

Considering Basilius Besler (1561-1629) prints are only selling at auction between $100-$200 and your work was printed by Catalada Fine Arts, the work is unfortunately a reproduction worth little as it was produced for mass sale in stores.

I did however manage to find a gallery online, Odyssey Fine Arts Ltd. (http://www.odysseyfinearts.com/), when doing research that features a few of his works in their collection if you would like to contact them for another opinion or maybe more historical background information regarding your work. I hope that this information can be of some assistance.
