Article description

Article description

Original copper engraving, published in the townbook "Civitates Orbis Terrarum" by Georg Braun and Franz Hogenberg. Frans Hogenberg (1535-1590) was an engraver and etcher who, together with Georg Braun, published the city view book Civitates Orbis Terrarum in 1572. In 1570 the Dutchman Abraham Ortelius published his famous world atlas Theatrum Orbis Terrarum - the first of its kind. Schefold translated it Title with description and contrafacture of the Vornembster city in the world. The Atlas was a great success and therefore probably an incentive for the edition of the Civitates Orbis Terrarum, which in size and design were presented quite similarly to the World Atlas by Ortelius and were probably also intended as an addition. . They were published in six volumes between 1572 and 1618 and showed all major cities in Europe, Africa, Asia and even America. The publisher was Georg Braun, a theologian who lived from 1541 to 1622. Frans Hogenberg was the engraver for the first 4 volumes. He had previously created various maps for Abraham Ortelius.

German text edition. Vol. V. / #9.
