Braun, Georg; Hogenberg, Frans
Posnania, Crosno
Braun Hogenberg 1617 - "Posnania elegans Poloniae in finibus Silesiae Civitas° [engraved together with] "Crosno". Orig. copper-engraving from the 6th part of Latin ed. of Braun and Hogenberg's "Civitates Orbis Terrarum". Published 1617/18. With ornamental title-cartouche (Poznan) and title at the top (Krosno) and ornamental cartouche with explanatory notes (1.-5.). 35:46 cm (13 3/4 x 18 1/4 inch.). Koeman IV, map 3457, ed. 41:1-3 (1617/18 B&H 6). - Two views printed from one plate. Poznan is a city on the Warta river in west-central Poland, in the Greater Poland region. Krosno is a town and county in Subcarpathian Voivodeship in southern Poland. - This view of Poznan and Krosno is from the sixth and last volume of Civitates Orbis Terrarum, published in a much smaller edition than previous volumes, and it is therefore rarer than most of Braun & Hogenberg city views.
