Article description

Article description

Original copper engraving, hand colored in wash, published 1576 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 plan shows a bird's eye view of the city of Aachen. A very nice and detailed plan of the city of Aachen with its walls and the nearby surrounding. The map is richly equipped with many houses, churches, etc. In the foreground with inhabitants. In the upper corners are two coat of arms of Aachen engraved. The title cartouche is in the lower left corner. Old colored example of this map, verso with descriptive German text. This view of Aachen by Braun and Hogenberg after the sketch by Hendrick Steenwyck, was only published from 1572 towards 1578, it was then replaced by a similar bird's eye view of Aachen in the townbooks by Braun & Hogenberg.
