Palanka Superioris Hungariæ civitas.
1617 - Cologne, 1617, Latin text edition. Coloured. 330 x 445mm. Drégelypalánk was a Christian stronghold after the capture of Hungary by the Ottomans, holding out until 1552, when the fort finally fell. After this time Braun's commentrary tells that 'the Turks had their robbers' den there' until 1593, when the Ottomans abandoned the region. The plan, by Jorge Hoefnagel, was published in the sixth and last volume of the 'Civitas Orbis Terrarum', which contained many plans illustrating events in the recent wars between the Holy Roman Empire and the Ottomans. KOEMAN: B&H 6.
