Article description

Original copper-engraving, handcolored in wash, published circa 1587/90 in the townbook Civitates Orbis Terrarum by Braun and Hogenberg. Verso with Gereman text. The entire series of the 'Civitates Orbis Terrarum' comprised six volumes and was published and printed from 1572 towards 1619. Decorative bird's eye view of the city Wratislava (Breslau) in Poland. This decorative and accurate plan of the city of Wratislava is ornated with coat of arms in the upper corners. In the lower corners we find two tables with 91 explanations on buildings, churches, markets, mills, gates and other places. The map is as well equipped with a compass rose. The city is very well shown with all the islands in the Oder river, as well with its walls and the gardens and fields around it.
