Fit rectangle to set of points

Dear Group,

I have a set of 2D points given for which I would like to find the
smallest rectangle circumscribing all the points.

Doing this with a circle instead of a rectangle was easy --- for the
rectangle I don't see the trick.

Any hints?

TIA + Best Regards,

Peter
