Braun, Georg
Old European Cities: Twenty-four 16th Century City Maps and Texts from the Civitates Orbis Terrarum
Old European Cities: Twenty-four 16th Century City Maps and Texts From the Civitates Orbis Terrarum of Georg Braun and Franz Hogenberg. A collection of 24 maps in their original full-color from the great pictorial atlas 'Civitates Orbis Terrarum' created between 1572 & 1618. These maps were a departure in map-making, being oblique pictorial views - as if seen from a neighboring hill - or else near-vertical views. Arthur Hibbert gives and intriguing introduction to the art of reading these early examples of cartology. There is also a description by Ruthardt Oehme, a recognized authority on medieval maps, of conditions under which the maps were made, and the processes involved in early copper engravings.
