This engraving of Tangiers in Morocco "shows a fortified town, whereby only half the area within the walls is built up. The large building in the background may be the governor's residence. In 1471 the Portuguese attacked Asilah, whose inhabitants fled to Tangier. But that same year Tangier, too, was conquered, and remained in Potuguese hands until 1580" (Taschen 123). Ceuta " lies on a peninsula on the coast of North Africa, near the Strait of Gibraltar. There were three reasons for its conquest by Portugal in 1415: firstly, the peninsula had become a threat due to its location on the Strait of Gibraltar, where it could potentially provide the Muslims with a stepping-stone to Europe. Secondly, Ceuta was an important trading port via which goods from Africa, in particular gold, were brought to Europe. Thirdly, the peninsula offered Portugal a gateway to the unknown continent of Africa. … [Click Below for Full Description]

Magnificent views of Toledo and Valladolid in Spain, from the Latin edition of George Braun and Frans Hogenberg's landmark “Civitates orbis terrarium”, completed in Cologne between 1572 and 1618, and among the most beautiful and important images of Renaissance cities. Toledo was a “wealthy and powerful city up to 1560, Toledo for a while maintained its position as the spiritual capital and cultural centre of Spain, even after Philip II moved his court to Madrid in 1561, the city numbering 62,000 inhabitants in 1571. Although the civic authorities endeavoured to increase the city's appeal through renovations and large-scale expansion, their efforts failed to persuade Philip II to return, with the result that Toledo went into a decline after 1600” (Taschen page 53). The descriptive text for the view of Valladolid “mentions King Philip II of Spain, who was born in Valladolid on 21 May 1529. In the 15th and 16th centuries Valladolid was the residence of the Kings of Castile and the centre of the Spanish Renaissance. Philip II centralized the kingdom and in 1561 moved his court to Madrid.

Georg BRAUN & Franz HOGENBERG
1572. Pianta a volo d'uccello, dalla I edizione del Civitates Orbis Terrarum, il primo atlante devoto esclusivamente alle piante e vedute delle principali città del mondo. Opera in 6 volumi, pubblicati dal 1572 al 1617. I sei volumi delle Civitates, grazie alla ricchezza dell'apparato cartografico-iconografico (più di 350 tavole di grande formato contenenti le raffigurazioni di circa 600 luoghi urbani), alla cura tipografico-editoriale, alla dovizia di informazioni storiche e attuali sulle città e alla novità costituita dalla stessa sistematicità e completezza della raccolta, rimasero a lungo un modello insuperato del genere. Gli autori principali furono Georg Braun (1541-1622), che curò la parte testuale, e Frans Hogenberg, editore, incisore e probabile ideatore dell'opera. La pianta, pubblicata nel I volume dell'opera, è una copia, in formato ridotto, di quella del Camocio. La città è ritratta dal Gianicolo. Rispetto alla pianta del Camocio, sono aggiunte in basso le due figure della dama e del cavaliere, elemento decorativo distintivo di tutte le vedute dell'opera di Braun & Hogenberg. Acquaforte, impressa su carta vergata coeva, in ottimo stato di conservazione.

Cologne: T. Graminaeus, 1572. Single sheet (16 4/8 x 22 inches; 10 4/8 x 18 6/8 inches to the neat line). 2 fine engraved views of Mexico City and Cusco, the titles within fine mannerist strapwork cartouches, all with EXCEPTIONALLY FINE, DELICATE ORIGINAL HAND COLOUR IN FULL, Latin text on verso (some browning and marginal staining and offsetting, one or two patches of brittle oxidation, five inch marginal tear affecting the image). Two magnificent views of Mexico City and Cusco, from the Latin edition of George Braun and Frans Hogenberg's landmark "Civitates orbis terrarium", completed in Cologne between 1572 and 1618, and among the most beautiful and important images of Renaissance cities. This engraving of Mexico City was founded as Tenochtitlan "around 1325 on an island in Lake Texcoco by wandering Aztec tribes. As the number of inhabitants grew to over 100,000 over the next 200 years, so the city spread across ever more of the lake's islets, which were linked by dams and bridges and drained by canals. The plate shows the magnificent central square with the palace of Moctezuma II and the Templo Mayor dedicated to the god Huitzilopochtli, where human sacrifice was performed. Reports of cannibalism and human sacrifice are a recurring theme of contemporary European accounts and were used to justify the Spanish conquest. Although the Aztecs were able to hold off Cortés and his troops in 1519, Tenochtitlan was taken by the Spanish in 1520 and the Aztec rulers put to death. The temple and the city were extensively damaged, and a church and a palace for the viceroy of New Spai … [Click Below for Full Description]

THE EARLIEST OBTAINABLE ENGRAVED VIEW OF LONDON A magnificent view of London during the height of the reign of Elizabeth I, extending from Lambeth in the west, to the Tower of London in the east; with a busy Thames River running through; and a group of elegant Elizabethan ladies and gentlemen in the foreground. From the Latin edition of George Braun and Frans Hogenberg's landmark "Civitates orbis terrarium", completed in Cologne between 1572 and 1618, and among the most beautiful and important images of Renaissance cities.

The "Civitates " was the first extensive series of town views that treated its subject matter in an accurate and meaningful way. Earlier collections of town views were far more limited in scope, and often made no real attempt to render the subject city with any degree of realism being simply a record of the existence of a town.

The view of Lubeck shows "the "City of Seven Spires" on the Baltic Sea seen from the west across the inland harbour, with the city gates - the Holstentor, left, Molentor and Burgtor, right - and the spires of its seven Gothic red-brick churches, all of which evolved out of existing Romanesque churches. Rising magnificently on the left is Lübeck's Gothic cathedral (De Dom). Further right lies the church of St Giles (S. Tillien), then the imperial church of St Peter (S. Petri) and the town Hall. St Mary's (Unse Lefrowen Karck) served the merchants, city council and people of Lübeck and is considered the mother church of red-brick Gothic architecture in northern Germany: it would provide the model for some 70 churches in the Baltic region.

The urban layout within the city walls is illustrated very clearly, as is the Seine flowing around the Isle de la Cité with the Sainte-Chapelle, the palace chapel. During the reign of Philip IV (Philip the Fair) the Tour d'Argent and Tour de César gatetowers and the Tour de l'Horloge clock tower were built. The city numbered some 200,000 inhabitants. Just beyond the city wall at the top of the picture is the large Fort la Bastille. On a fictive hill three people clad in typical contemporary dress are shown from an idealized viewpoint.

The town arose in the middle of the 12th century as a port on the Island of Schouwen-Duiveland, directly on Lake Grevelingen in the northern Netherlandish province of Zeeland. It owes its name ("brewers' port") to its earlier involvement in the beer trade: due to the lack of spring water, Zeeland in the Middle Ages had no brewery of its own and so had to import its beer from Holland. The large church of Sint-Nicolaas (left) was begun in 1325, but the town hall would not be built until 1599.

In the centre stands the Romanesque cathedral of San Lorenzo, built in the 13th century. Higher up the hillside lies the Palazzo Ducale, here still as a medieval complex from the 13th century. The approximately 80-m-high lighthouse (La Lanterna) on the left is another symbol of the city. Genoa's economic importance is underlined by the volume of shipping in front of the port; the New World was discovered in 1492 by the Genoa born Columbus. 1407 saw the founding in Genoa of the Banco di San Giorgio, which lent money to various monarchs in the early modern era and thereby earned Genoa an exceptionally important position within the network of Europe's ruling houses" (Taschen page 112).

Cologne: T. Graminaeus, 1572. Single sheet (16 4/8 x 22 inches; 13 inches x 18 4/8 inches to the neat line). A fine engraved view of Cologne, the title and explanatory text within fine mannerist stapwork and allegorical cartouches, all with delicate original colour in full, Latin text on verso (some browning and marginal staining and offsetting, one or two patches of brittle oxidation, short tear in the lower margin not affecting the image). A magnificent view of Cologne in Germany, from the Latin edition of George Braun and Frans Hogenberg's landmark "Civitates orbis terrarium", completed in Cologne between 1572 and 1618, and among the most beautiful and important images of Renaissance cities. The birthplace the present city atlas and the home of its author George Braun, is seen in bird's-eye view from a steep angle. The plan clearly illustrates Cologne's large surface area and its characteristic semicircular ground plan fronting the Rhine. Thanks to the captions, the most important buildings can be easily identified. To the left of centre the cathedral - the largest Gothic church in Germany, with towers 157 m in height - appears in distorted perspective. To its right lies the town hall described by Braun, together with the Alter Markt and the Heumarkt. Prominent in the lower half of the map is the Romanesque basilica of the Holy Apostles. A major city since Roman times, in 1288 Cologne became an imperial city. Close trading links with England encouraged its rapid economic growth and the Cologne exchange was founded in 1553. The crowded clocks illustrate the city's lively … [Click Below for Full Description]

Magnificent views of Frankfurt in Germany, from the Latin edition of George Braun and Frans Hogenberg's landmark "Civitates orbis terrarium", completed in Cologne between 1572 and 1618, and among the most beautiful and important images of Renaissance cities. An impressive bird's-eye view from the southwest of the "powerful trade city of Frankfurt, in 1605 home to 20,000 people. St Batholomew's cathedral, coronation church of the German kings and emperors, stands on the hill at the core of the original settlement on the right bank of the Main. On the Römerberg hill further left, the Römer and Goldener Schwan houses served as the town hall from 1405 onwards; to their right lies the Gothic councillors' church of St Nicholas. Identified in the Sachsenhausen quarter are the church of the Magi (H. Drei Konig), which became Frankfurt's first Protestant church in 1525, and the house of the Teutonic Knights (Teutsch Hauss). Frankfurt had been established as an international trade-fair centre and city of commerce in the Middle Ages: its autumn fair had been running since the 12th century and the spring fair since 1330.

Cologne: T. Graminaeus, 1572-90. Single page (22 x 16 ½) Full margins showing the plate mark (foxing, browning, margin staining center short tear, chipping, pitting affecting bottom engraving.) A stunning bird's eye view of the Spanish cities of Burgos and San Sebastian. Taken from the 1572 original Civitates Orbis Terrarum by Georg Braun and Frans Hogenberg. This famous atlas provides its viewers with outstanding insight into the cities of the world, through the views, social interactions between locally dressed figures, and pastoral backgrounds. The sheet is further embellished with an elegant bordering and simple cartouches. Burgos is depicted to us as a view from afar, sitting gallantly on the right bank of the Arlazon River. There are several striking architectural structures standing out, namely the enormous Gothic cathedral (13-15c century) towering over the cities structures. In a distance, we see the standing ruins of the old city citadel, which functioned as a fortress for the ruling kings of Castile. The city's commercial activities and trade in cloth, wool, cheese are subtly highlighted by the engraver's staffage. The view of San Sebastian illustrates a delightful seaside-scape, The city's buildings appear cramped and undistinguishable; with the ruins of an old fortress on a nearby hill overlooking the city.The left-hand side outcrop depicted the martyring figure of Saint Sebastian, from whom this city takes its name.

Cologne: T. Graminaeus, 1572-90. Single page (22 x 16 ½) Full margins showing the plate mark (foxing, browning, margin staining, chipping) An attractive trio of French cities, namely Rouen, Bordeaux, and Nimes; taken from the Civitates Orbis Terrarum by famed Braun and Hogenberg. The most subtle aspect of these three plans is their Roman roots. Originally parts of Roman provinces, we can frequently see the city walls, amphitheatres, and roads; presented less as backdrops and in as much use here in the 16th century as they were in the Roman era. Rouen held a favorable position, between the right bank of the Seine and the rolling pastoral hills. The staffage suggests the frequent route of trade and travel between Rouen and Paris. Nimes, an old flourishing settlement dating to the Celts, held an important role as capital of the Narbonensis province mid 2nd century. The Via Domitia, a major transportation road linking Italy with Spain, ran right through the city – frequently providing the city with ample trade opportunities and visitors. The most regocnizable feature of this plan is the Roman Amphitetheare to the left. Its facacde, made up of two stories and sixty arches, is evident even with the foreshortening. The Pont du Gare, considered one of the most brilliant works of Roman civil engineering, is seen in a distance. In our plan of Bordeaux, it is evident from the size of the city's harbor that it was already an important point of trade between France and the Colonies. The fortifications, seen to the top and bottom left, were built by Charles VII in 15th c. following the … [Click Below for Full Description]

Cologne: T. Graminaeus, 1572-90. Single page (22 x 16 ½) Full margins showing the plate mark (foxing, browning, margin staining, chipping) The magnificently designed engraving of Liège takes up the rapturous tone of Braun's description and shows the city with the Meuse flowing in its favorable location amongst gentle hills, sturdy trees and fertile fields. Presented in spatial depth and exuding a striking sense of animation, it is one of the most successful landscapes in Braun and Hogenberg's city atlas. In 1468, Liège was attacked by Charles the Bold and set alight, profoundly altering the medieval face of the city. From the second half of the 15th century onwards much of the city was rebuilt in the contemporary style. The illustration shows the Ourthe flowing into the Meuse and the concentration of buildings in the city centre with its soaring churches and hospices. The cathedral of Saint-Lambert, which would later be destroyed in the upheaval of the French Revolution, is impressively documented. The Gothic collegiate church of Saint-Paul was made Liège's new cathedral. Examples of Romanesque architecture include the collegiate churches of Saint-Denis, Saint-Barthélemy and the church of Saint-Martin, which was built in the Gothic style in the early 16th century. The ‘Civitates Orbis Terrarum' (‘Atlas of the Cities of the World') by Braun and Hogenburg is the second oldest printed atlas in the history of world cartography; and the first atlas of towns. Its principal creators and authors were the theologist and editor Georg Braun, the most important engraver and publish … [Click Below for Full Description]

Cologne: T. Graminaeus, 1572-90. Single page (22 x 16 ½) Full margins showing the plate mark (foxing, browning, margin staining, chipping) A stunning bird's eye perspective of the city of Lyon; taken from Braun and Hogenberg's famed Civitates Orbis Terrarum. This 1572 Latin edition of the map provides its viewer with a glimpse into 16th century city, complete with accurate city planning, figures in contemporary dress, and cartouches providing historical Latin texts. The extravagance of this engraving is a prime example of why these maps are so sought after. The city of Lyon is position perfectly between the River Rhône and Saône. This placement was highly advantageous for the city, resulting in tremendous amounts of trade between the countries and colonies. In 1536, Francis I further pushed the trade agenda in Lyon by awarding the city with the monopoly for weaving gold, silver, and silk textiles. This resulted in a rapid growth of the silk industry, and in turn made Lyon one of France's first true industrial cities. Lyon also became a significant center for printing in the late 15th -16thc centuries, thanks to its close trade ties with Italy. This map of Lyon does a spectacular job in bringing significant building to our attention. The center highlights the city's oldest surviving church, the Romanesque Benedictine abbey of Saint-Martin-d'Ainay (1107); seen alongside the Romanesque-Gothic Cathedral of Saint-Jean (1180-1480).

Cologne: T. Graminaeus, 1572-90. Single page (22 x 16 ½) Full margins showing the plate mark (foxing, browning, margin staining, chipping) A stunning trio of views, featuring Montpellier, Tours, and Poitiers; taken from Braun and Hogenberg's illustrative Civitates Orbis Terrarum. Presented as two smaller plans on top, and a landscape view of Poitiers on the bottom. Montpellier and Tours contain a letter guide to significant buildings within the city proper; Poitiers labels the buildings directly on the plan. Montpellier held its fame for its Cathedral and University. The Notre-Dames-des-Tables, recognizable for the tall spire overlooking the city, was a frequent stopping point for pilgrims on their way to the famed Santiago di Compostela during the Middle Ages. The University was founded in the 13th century, containing schools for medicine, arts, and law. Tours is viewed from a near bird's eye perspective; showing off the city's distinctive medieval center. The right bears the late Gothic cathedral of Saint-Gatien (built from 13-16th c). The abbey of Saint-Martin is here in tact – it was later destroyed in a fire in 1562. Poitier, the largest plan on this sheet, is engraved with the most precise detail; allowing a facilitated recognition to the significant buildings. Between the University and Royal Court of Law, Poitiers became an intellectual hub in the 16th century. This is perhaps the main reason for focusing on Poitiers in this sheet.

Cologne: T. Graminaeus, 1572-90. Single page (22 x 16 ½) Full margins showing the plate mark (foxing, browning, center 8" tear and 3/4 inch gap.) Gorgeous antique map featuring two bird's eye views of Lisbon and Cascael; taken from Braun and Hogenberg's Civitates Orbis Terrarum. Hand-colored and decorated with cartouche and Lisbon coat of arms. Lisbon's appearance in second place in this famous atlas is certainly no accident. Lisbon attained great wealth from the establishment of the Portuguese trade empire between Africa, India, and the Far East. In 1499, Vasco de Gama set out on a voyage of discovery, resulting in colonization of parts of Asia and South America. By the mid- 16th century, it was ranked amongst the largest of the cities belonging to the Civitates. This sheet contains two views of beautiful Lisbon; the top presents the whole city complete with the Romans and Moorish citadels in the background; and lower portion shows the Tower of Belem and the Geronimos Monastery. The view of densely packed houses reflects the idea of how bustling the city must have been for the 16th century. The lower portion of the plan showcases Cascais, a small fishing village in the vicinity of Lisbon. It is depicted here as a low, bird's-eye perspective from the sea. The church of Santa Maria mentioned by Braun in verso served the former Hieronymite monastery (c. 1502-1572).
