BRAUN, Georg (1541-1622) and Frans HOGENBERG (fl. c. 1540-1590)
Cologne: G. von Kempen, 1582. Single sheet (15 6/8 x 20 4/8 inches; 14 2/8 x 18 2/8 inches to the neat line). Fine engraved view of the city of Zurich, the title and sub-title within fine mannerist strapwork cartouches, decorated with the Royal arms, all with exceptionally fine deep, rich original hand-colour in full, with German text on the verso (central vertical crease, short tears in the lower margin affecting the image, one or two pale marginal stains). A magnificent view of the celebrated city of Zurich, the capital of Switzerland, and financial capital of Europe, from the very rare German 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. At the time of this view Zurich was a well-fortified and wealthy city, and for many years had been the centre of the Protestant Reformation in German-speaking Switzerland, led by Ulrich Zwingli. 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 "Civitates…" contained literally hundreds of vie … [Click Below for Full Description]

Cologne: G. von Kempen, 1582. Single sheet (15 6/8 x 20 4/8 inches; 13 4/8 x 18 4/8 inches to the neat line). Fine engraved view of the city of Kampen, the title and key within fine mannerist strapwork cartouches, decorated with the arms of the city, all with exceptionally fine deep, rich original hand-colour in full, with German text on the verso (short tear in the lower margin, one or two marginal spots). A magnificent view Kampen on the river Ijssel in Holland, from the very rare German 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 1572 Kampen was conquered from the Spaniards by Willem van den Bergh, a brother of William the Silent (William I, Prince of Orange 1533 -1584). But the city was soon back in Spanish hands, only to be re-taken in 1578, at the Siege of Kampen, led by George van Lalaing. The view shows that Kampen was a bustling city at the end of the 16th century, despite the conflicts of the Eighty Years War, and the fields opposite show textiles being laid out to dry. The "Civitates…" was the first extensive series of town views that treated its subject matter in an accurate and meaningful way.

Fine engraved view of the city of Valenciennes, the title within a fine mannerist strapwork cartouche, decorated with the Royal arms and the arms of the city, all with exceptionally fine deep, rich original hand-colour in full, with German text on the verso (one or two marginal spots). A magnificent view of the city of Valenciennes in northern France, from the very rare German 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. Valenciennes, at the time of this view, was wealthy from its wool and textile industries, and despite being part of the Hapsburg empire was a centre of Calvinism and protestant rebellion. In 1580, Alexander Farnese, Duke of Parma took Valenciennes and eradicated the city of Protestantism, and protestants too.

In the 16th century Trento came to political religious prominence with the Council of Trent (1545-1563), which gave rise to the Counter-Reformation. Under the Prince-Bishops of the time Renaissance Humanism floruished, part of the expression of which was the presence of a Jewish printing press. In 1558 Cardinal Madruzzo granted the privilege of printing Hebrew books to Joseph Ottolengo, although the books were printed by Jacob Marcaria. After his death in 1562 the press of Riva di Trento ceased printing, but not before thirty-four works had been published in the period 1558 to 1562, most of them bearing the coat of arms of Madruzzo. Prince-bishops ruled Trento until the Napoleonic era. The "Civitates…" was the first extensive series of town views that treated its subject matter in an accurate and meaningful way.

A exceptionally fine and detailed view of the City of Rouen, from the very rare German 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 magnificent view of Rouen shows the city during the reign of Henri IV of France. Building and roads are depicted in minute detail, including the famous cathedral which had been extensively damaged by the Calvinists and lightening on a number of occasions in the recent past. Henri IV often laid siege to the city, notably during the siege of December 1591 to May 1592, with the help of a Spanish army led by the Duke of Parma.

Sluis, on the banks of the Zwin, was, like Damme, Monnikenrede, Hoeke, Muyden a wealthy port of Bruges, although as a result of the silting up of the Zwin, it too is cut off from the sea. In 1587, during the Eighty Years War, the duke of Parma took Sluis, and from there commanded the Zwin estuary.

BRAUN, Georg (1541-1622) and Frans HOGENBERG (fl. c. 1540-1590).
Cologne: G. von Kempen, 1582 Single sheet (15 6/8 x 20 4/8 inches; 13 6/8 x 19 inches to the neat line). Two fine engraved views of the cities of Orvieto and Lauretum, the titles within fine mannerist strapwork cartouches, all with exceptionally fine deep, rich original hand-colour in full, with German text on the verso (some surface tears restored, one or two pale marginal stains). Magnificent views of the cities Orvieto and Laurentum in Italy, from the very rare German 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. During the Sack of Rome in 1527 by Charles V, Pope Clement VII sought refuge in Orvieto, a city built upon a volcanic acropolis with a network of underground passages. The ancient Roman town of Laurentum, built on the Italian peninsular, has a fine view of the Mediterranean. 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 "Civitates…" contained literally hundreds of views, including many of smaller towns for whi … [Click Below for Full Description]

Cologne: G. von Kempen, 1582 Single sheet (15 6/8 x 20 4/8 inches; 12 6/8 x 16 4/8 inches to the neat line). Fine engraved view of the city of Passau, the title, sub-title and key within fine mannerist strapwork cartouches, decorated with the Royal arms and the arms of the city, all with exceptionally fine deep, rich original hand-colour in full, with German text on the verso (central vertical crease, short tears in the lower margin affecting the image with early cellotape repair, one or two pale marginal stains). A magnificent view of the city of Passau at the confluence of the Inn and Danube rivers, from the very rare German 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. Shortly before this view was created Archduke Ferdinand I, representing Emperor Charles V, secured the agreement of the Protestant princes to submit the religious question to a diet. This led to the signing of the Peace of Augsburg in 1555. Passau is most famous, however, for its sword and blade making industry. The local smiths stamped their blades with the Passau wolf, which became so popular a motif that other cities' smiths, including those of Solingen, adopted it for themselves. By the 17th century, Solingen was producing more wolf-stamped blades than Passau was. In 1662, a devastating fire consumed most of the city. Passau was subsequently rebuilt in the Baroque style.

A magnificent view of the town of Mechelen in Belgium, from the very rare German 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. Mechelen rose to prominence in the 16th-century under the patronage of Archduchess Margaret of Austria (1480-1530), as a centre of political power and the arts. Her father, Emperor Maximilian, named Margaret governor of the Low Countries and guardian of her young nephew Charles (the future Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor) in 1507, and she became the first female regent of a major European territory who was neither the mother nor the wife of a major sovereign. From her palace at Mechelen, Margaret negotiated a treaty of commerce with England favorable to the Flemish cloth interests, and played a role in the formation of the League of Cambrai (1508). Her reign was a period of relative peace and prosperity for the Netherlands, before the troubles of the Protestant Reformation reached their peak.

The "Civitates " was the first extensive series of town views that treated its subject matter in an accurate and meaningful way.

Earlier collections contained no more than a handful of views, usually only of the more important cities, while the "Civitates " contained literally hundreds of views, including many of smaller towns for which no earlier views are known.

Delft became in effect the capital of the newly independent Netherlands after the Act of Abjuration was proclaimed in 1581.

Enkhuisen was also one of the first towns to declare support for William the Silent (William I, Prince of Orange 1533 -1584) from 1572, as he led the rebellion against the Hapsburg King Philip II of Spain.
