BRAUN, Georg (1541-1622) and Frans HOGENBERG (fl. c. 1540-1590)
Cologne: T. Graminaeus, 1572 Single sheet (16 4/8 x 22 inches; 13 x 19 inches to the neat line). Fine engraved view of London, the title and descriptive text within fine mannerist strapwork cartouches, decorated with the Royal arms and the arms of the city, with delicate original colour in full, Latin text on verso (some browning and marginal staining and offsetting). 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. This view of London dates from about 1550-1560 as St. Paul's Cathedral still has a steeple. The Royal barge is visible in the centre of the Thames. 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. Certainly the striking beauty and accuracy of Braun and Hogenberg's production was entirely unprecedented. Earlier collections contained no more than a handful of views, usually only of the more important cities, while the … [Click Below for Full Description]

Two magnificent views of Jerusalem in the Holy Land, one as it was in biblical times, and one as in the 16th-century, 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 information provided in the "cartouches makes it possible to compare the city of the past with that of Braun's day. Inset within the lower right-hand corner is an illustration of Moses receiving the Tablets of the Law, together with the figure of a high priest; the priest's vestments are described in detail in the accompanying cartouche. According to the Bible, at the time of the conquest of Canaan by the tribes of Israel the city was ruled by the Jebusites; they were driven out by King David in 997 BC. The First Temple was built under Solomon in the middle of the 10th century, and Jerusalem subsequently became the centre of Judaism. Solomon's temple was destroyed in 586 BC by the Neo-Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar II. The Second Temple was built a … [Click Below for Full Description]

A fine engraved view of Naples, the title within a fine manneriest strapwork cartouche, with an extensive key beneath the image, 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). A magnificent view of Naples in Italy, 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. Naples saw its "greatest flowering in the early modern era under Alfonso V of Aragon, who as Alfonso I was also king of Naples and Sicily. Between 1450 and 1550 it grew from 40,000 to 210,000 inhabitants and thereby became Europe's second-largest city after Paris. Noteworthy here are the three forts: the Castel Nuovo (10) lies directly on the seafront beside the large mole. On the rocky promontory on the left, the Castel dell'Ovo (12) in the Santa Lucia district is a harbour fort from the 9th century.

Cologne: T. Graminaeus, 1572 Single sheet (16 4/8 x 22 inches; 13 2/8 x 19 inches to the neat line). Three fine engraved views of Groningen, Brouwershaven and Gorinchem in the Netherlands, the titles and explanatory text within fine mannerist strapwork cartouches, decorated with the Royal arms and the arms of the cities, 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). Magnificent views of Groningen, Brouwershaven and Gorinchem in the Netherlands, 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. Groningen is then the capital of Fresia. The view of Brouwershaven shows the "farmhouses in the foreground and the absence of city fortifications lend Brouwershaven a primarily rural character. 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. After economically difficult times, in the mid-19th century Brouwerhaven enjoyed renewed prosperity when it temporarily took over Ro … [Click Below for Full Description]

Single sheet (16 4/8 x 22 inches; 13 inches x 18 4/8 inches to the neat line). 2 fine engraved views of Genoa and Florence, the titles and explantory text within a fine manneriest strapwork 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). Magnificent views of Genoa and Florence in Italy, 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 trading port and city of Genoa is "presented from an ideal, elevated viewpoint from the south. The layout of the city can be clearly seen as it slopes down to the sea. 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).

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]

Framed and glazed; framed dimensions: 46 x 59cm. Published in the first volume of the Civitates Orbis Terrarum (Cities of the World) - the first systematic depiction of cities ever undertaken.

BRAUN, Georg (1541-1622) and HOGENBERG, Frans (fl. 1540-1590).
Cologne: T. Graminaeus, 1572-90. A striking view of Lutetia, more commonly known as Paris. Taken from Braun and Hogenberg's famous Civitates Orbis Terrarum. The plan is decorated with an elegant title cartouche, bearing the city's coat-of-arms; a simple cartouche containing a Parisian poem; and three contemporary dressed figures in the foreground. The former name of ‘Lutetia' referred to the Gallo-Roman city, which acted as the predecessor to present-day Paris. The Latin edition of Braun and Hogenberg's atlas frequently uses the original titles to the cities depicted. The map of Paris is presented from a bird's eye perceptive. This urban layout of the city is illustrated very clearly within the city walls, with the river Seine flowing gracefully around the Ile de la Cite. In the 16th century, under the rule of Henry IV, Paris began to undergo a flourishing shift into a rich capital. The bustling houses are close together, with winding roads connecting the different parts of the city.The Ile de la Cite shows us the Notre-Dame Catherdral, whose building completed 300 years earlier. The Palais de la Citie and Saint-Chapelle sit on the lower half of the Ile; built in the 13th century. The top center gives us a glimpse of la Bastille outside of the Paris city walls, just a few decades before it was made famous during the French Revolution. 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.

Cologne: T. Graminaeus, 1572-90 Single page (22 x 16 ½) Full margins showing the plate mark (foxing, browning, paint smear outside margin, center crease tear 3½ in.) A fine, hand-colored map depicting London; taken from Braun and Hogenberg's Civitates Orbis Terrarum. This map depicts Elizabethan London in all of its glory, and is the earliest obtainable, surviving map or view of the city. It provides its viewer with the highest level of accuracy and detail. Braun and Hogenberg take care to highlight and label the significant buildings of London, such as the famous Tower. However, the map offers an in depth look at urban life in the 16th century. The Bull and Bear pits in evidence south of the River Thames, two facilities for "animal sporting" during this time period. The River Thames is teeming with Tudor barges and sailing vessels, perhaps from trading with the Dutch. The only bridge across the Thames is London Bridge which joins the City of London to Southwark. The three cities of London, Westminster, and Southwark are depicted as quite separate entities at this time - a remarkable aspect. In the foreground are four Londoners in traditional Tudor dress. The figures are flanked by text; and above the plan the title is flanked by the Royal and the City of London's coats-of-arms. 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.

Cologne: T. Graminaeus, 1572-90. Single page (22 x 16 ½) Full margins showing the plate mark (foxing, browning, center short tear, chipping.) A striking view of Barcelona and Granada; taken from Braun and Hogenebrg's illustrative Civitates Orbis Terrarum. The views are decorated with elegant strapwork cartouches, a fine border, and are delicately hand-colored. Figures are seen standing in the foreground of each view, showing an active daily interaction between two Spaniards. The view of Barcelona shows the city from the northeastern slopes of Montjuich, closed off from the pastoral fields by high city walls. The most curious aspect to this view is the rainbow towering over the river. This could perhaps symbolize the good fortune Barcelona experienced from the royal trades it undertook. The royal shipyards, called reales Atarazanas and date from the 13-14th centuries, dominate the waters. The center of the view creates a focus on the Cathedral and the arsenal. Granada's favorable position at the foot of the fertile grounds of Sierra Nevada is illustrated particularly clearly in this engraving. Around the 8th century, Granada was conquered by the Moors. It functioned as the capital of the independent Moorish kingdom and experienced its greatest successes after 1238. Although Moorish rule in Spain came to an end with the capture of Granada by Ferdinand and Isabella in 1492, the city's link with Moorish culture survived in its architecture, in the layout of its streets and districts, and above all, in the Alhambra fortress.

Cologne: T. Graminaeus, 1572-90. Single page (22 x 16 ½) Full margins showing the plate mark (foxing, browning, center 10" tear.) A stunning hand-colored bird's eye view of Toledo and Valladoild; taken from the Civitates Orbis Terrarum by Braun and Hogenberg. In this view, presented from the opposite bank of the Tajo from the cliffs beside Virgen del Valle, Toledo's striking location above the Tajo River is emphasized. The city and surrounding countryside are rendered with great precision and almost every house seems to be individually drawn. The churches and the Alcaisar rise high above the sea of houses. A wealthy and powerful city up to 1560, Toledo maintained its position as the spiritual capital and cultural centre of Spain for quite a few years, even after Philip II moved his court to Madrid in 1561. Although the civic authorities endeavored 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. Looking below at Valladoild, showcases an elevated viewpoint has been deliberately chosen in order to provide a better overview of the city. The staffage figures in peasant dress emphasize the rural character of the surrounding countryside. Rising prominently in the centre of the city is the church of San Pablo. King Philip II of Spain, who was born in Valladolid in May 1529. In the 15th and 16th centuries Valladolid was the residence of the Kings of Castile and the centre of the Spanish Renaissance.

Cologne: T. Graminaeus, 1572-90. Single page (22 x 16 ½) Full margins showing the plate mark (foxing, browning, center 10" tear.) A beautiful trio of bird's eye views of Seville, Cadiz, and Malaga. These three Spanish cities are taken from the famous Civitates Orbis Terrarum by Georg Braun and Frans Hogenberg. The engraving was completed by Frans Hogenberg. This view of Seville presents the city from the southeast barrier, seen from a distance from the land of Guadalquivir. The misfortune of Castile is seen engulfed by the flames - though the event is curious as there has never been a fire of this scale recorded. It may be a symbolic reference to the Spanish Wars. Further out left is the Alcazar, whose originally Almohad architecture was remodelled in the Mudéjar style in the 14th century. Rising above the city centre is the Gothic cathedral which houses the tomb of Columbus. The tall bell tower, called the "Giralda", was formerly a minaret and is today one of the city's landmarks. In the 16th century, Seville profited greatly from the trade it entered with the New World. The fleets from 1537 were heavy with goods, such as wine, salt, corn, and silk. These ships sailed regularly between the two continents, granting riches into the city. The town of Cadiz is depicted from a cavalier perspective; providing us with a glimpse into remnants of the Moorish settlements which flourished here from the 8th to 13th centuries. The fortified town center boasts a large church and fortress. In the 16th century Cadiz served as the so-called "gateway to America" - Columbus embarked upon … [Click Below for Full Description]

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).

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, 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 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). The ‘Civitates Orbis Terrarum’ (‘Atlas of the Cities of the World’) by Braun and Hogenburg is the sec … [Click Below for Full Description]

BRAUN, Georg (1541-1622) and HOGENBERG, Frans (fl. 1540-1590).
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) 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]

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.

Chartres is shown from the southeast, with its famous cathedral at the center of the frame towering over the comparatively diminutive city around it. This prized church became the model for many other Gothic churches and is nearly synonymous with the city in which it is located. A number of lesser churches are also shown in detail, as are houses, fields, and gardens. Similarly detailed is the map of Châteaudun, shown from the east as to clearly illustrate how the city leans up against the ridge of the hill to its right. This city's prominent buildings are the 12th-century chateau at the top right and the church of La Madeleine at the upper left. Its seal and coat of arms are also rendered. he print is from Braun's city atlas "Civitates Orbis Terrarum", a collection of city views and plans created as a companion to Ortelius' "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum" and published between 1572 and 1617.

The merchants' guilds relocated here and between 1347 and 1496 Antwerp's population grew from 5,000 to 50,000; by 1565 this figure is estimated to have reached 95,000. In the 16th century Antwerp was also an important centre of the arts and home to the lea … [Click Below for Full Description]

BRAUN, Georg (1541-1622) & HOGENBERG, Franz (1535-1590).
Cologne: 1572-1612. Two sheets joined (32 x 19 inches, trimmed margins with platemark). Fine engraved view with original hand-coloring of Antwerp with inset text and cartouche (lightly toned). Drawn for volume V of Braun and Hogenburg's Civitates orbis terrarum by contributor Georg Hoefnagel, a resident of Antwerp. An ornate cartouche in the lower right contains a poem by the Italian scholar Julius Scaliger (April 23, 1484 - October 21, 1558). Text in the lower left includes a neo-Latin verse by Flemish diplomat Daniel Rogers, numbered key to the city's landmarks as well as a description of the people and culture. From Georg Braun's description of the city, "The city is in rich possession of that which belongs to the nourishment of the soul and the practice of the Christian religion. For it has 5 parish churches, 9 monasteries and nunneries, 8 chapels, 3 hospices, 24 houses of God. The Franciscan monastery is particularly famous and invested with a magnificent library, which was plundered in the wars gone by, however. [...] In the very centre of the city is a large square called the Bourse, which is lined with magnificent columns supporting the covered colonnade and which is very skilfully vaulted: it looks as if it were panelled in wood. In the colonade there are all sorts of things for sale that are interesting to look at; the merchants meet here every day at certain times to trade their wares." The views from George Braun and Frans Hogenberg's landmark Civitates orbis terrarum, completed in Cologne between 1572 and 1618, are among the most beautiful and important image … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Cologne: ca 1572 or later]. Single sheet (16 2/8 x 21 inches). Fine engraved views of Anea, Diu, Azemmour and Old Goa, all with SUPERB ORIGINAL HAND-COLOURING IN FULL, French text on verso (margins a little toned, and with a short tear, not affecting the image, central vertical fold). Magnificent views of Anea, Azemmour, Diu and Old Goa from the French 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 beautiful engraving shows the “ravaged city after 1486. The Berbers arrived in the area as early as the 7th century; their settlement subsequently evolved into the small independent Kingdom of Anfa, which in the 14th century became a major port. In 1486 Anfa was destroyed by the Portuguese, who in 1515 used its ruins to build a fort, called Casablanca, after the nearby burgeoning town of the same name” (Taschen page 133). Azemmour, or Azamor, “lies on the left bank of the Oum Rabie River, some 72 km south of Casablanca. In 1486 the small town started paying a tribute to the Portuguese and in 1508 was conquered by them. In 1513, however, when the local governor Moulay Zayam refused to pay the tribute, the town was destroyed” (Taschen page 133). The engraving shows Diu in “cavalier perspective from the sea. The town is encircled by secure ramparts, from which three jetties lead out into the water. Rising above its severely geometric skyline are a number of tall towers that served as look-out posts.

A fine engraved view of Ancona, the title within a fine manneriest strapwork cartouche, with an extensive key beneath the image, 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). Magnificent view of Ancona in Italy, 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. In this engraving Ancona is seen from the Adriatic. "The curved natural harbour full of ships in front of the city and the well-ordered fields on the hills behind are particularly evident. On a rocky promontory on the far left lies the Romanesque cathedral of San Ciriaco (1), which dominates the city and the port. The city's notable Gothic churches include San Francesco which its attached monastery (15, left) and San Agostino (32, centre) (Taschen page 113). 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. Certainly the striking beauty and accuracy of Braun and Hogenberg's production was entirely unprecedented. Earlier collections contained no more than a handful … [Click Below for Full Description]

Fine engraved view of Amsterdam, the title and explanatory text and key within fine mannerist strapwork cartouches, decorated with the arms of the city, 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). A magnificent view of Amsterdam in the Netherlands, 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 plan presents Amsterdam in bird's-eye view from a northeasterly direction. On the left-hand side we can see how the mouth of the River Amstel has been dammed and its waters channelled into canals and made to pass through the city before flowing out into the Zuiderzee (today the IJsselmeer). The canals, which were used to transport imported goods to the counting houses located all over the city, are lined with private houses, commercial buildings and warehouses. In the centre of the plan, the old town hall (Stadhuis, 21) and the neighbouring Nieue Kerk (23) are also clearly recognizable. With its depiction of the heavy shipping traffic inside the harbour and on the Zuiderzee, the engraving conveys an impression of the contemporary scale of trade conducted in the continually expanding metropolis. In the 13th century Amsterdam was simply a small fishing port built on marshy ground. In 1300 it was grant … [Click Below for Full Description]
