Original copper engraving, hand colored in wash, published 1572-78 in volume I of the town book 'Civitates Orbis Terrarum' by Braun and Hogenberg. The entire series of the 'Civitates Orbis Terrarum' comprised six volumes and was published and printed from 1572 towards 1619. This decorative map shows Frankfurt in Germany. This is a very nice bird´s ey view of the town Frankfurt with a fortress around the town. The map is equipped with many houses, streets, churches, river, trees, garden, peoples, etc. The title cartouche is in the upper middle field. At the lower right corner we find a cartouche with a Latin text. Also a large Latin text is on the back side of this map.
