Namurcum, Elegantissima Ad Mosae Flume Civitas
Braun & Hogenberg 1595 - Original antique birds-eye-view map of Namur, on the Meuse River in Belgium, printed more than 415 years ago. This spectacular town plan was published by Braun & Hogenberg, Cologne, in their Atlas Civitates Orbis Terrarum, circa 1595. The image area measures 35 x 43.6 cm [13¾" x 17¼"] on a double-folio sheet, with generous margins on all sides. The title is contained with a decorative cartouche: Namurcum, Elegantissima Ad Mosae Flume Civitas, and three figures are drawn in the foreground. Original hand color. There's a full-page of Latin text on the reverse side, with a large initial cap. Condition: This map is in very good condition, with a vertical center fold, as issued, and no marks, rips, or tears. Please see the scans, which include a view of the reverse side, and feel free to ask any questions. This is an original, authentic antique map, not a reproduction or modern reprint, and it is fully guaranteed to be genuine. It was compiled by Georg Braun and Franz Hogenberg, publishers of history's most opulent collection of town maps and illustrations. This map would make a very handsome and dramatic display in your den or office. It would also make a perfect gift, and we'll include our helpful framing tips for your reference, along with a Certificate of Authenticity.
