Civitates orbis terrarum = Cities of the world : 363 engravings revolutionize the view of the world : complete edition of the colour plates of 1572-1617 by Georg Braun( Book )

18 editions published between 1572 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This quality reprint includes the most enchanting color plates from the Civitates orbis terrarum, a magnificent collection of town map engravings, produced between 1572 and 1617. Featuring plans, bird's-eye views, and maps for all major cities in Europe, plus important urban centers in Asia, Africa, and Latin American, this masterwork in urban mapping gives us a comprehensive view of city life at the turn of the 17th century. It was edited and annotated by theologian and publisher Georg Braun and largely engraved by Franz Hogenberg, but also involved over a hundred different artists and cartographers who contributed not only town views, but additional elements, such as figures in local dress, courtroom scenes, and topographical details to help convey the situation, commercial power, and political influence of each city. Taschen's reprint contextualizes the plates with selected extracts from Braun's original texts on the history and significance of each urban center as well as detailed commentaries to place each city map in its cartographical and cultural context."--Publisher's website
