Single sheet (15 6/8 x 20 4/8 inches; 13 3/8 x 17 4/8 inches to the neat line). Fine engraved views of the cities of Philippeville, Mariembourg, Chimay, and Walcourt, the titles within fine mannerist strapwork cartouches, all with exceptionally fine deep, rich original hand-colour in full, with German text on the verso (some surface abrasions restored, one or two marginal spots). Magnificent views of the frontier towns of Philippeville, Mariembourg, Chimay, and Walcourt in Belgium, from the very rare German edition of George Braun and Frans Hogenberg's landmark "Civitates orbis terrarium", completed in Cologne between 1572 and 1618, and among the most beautiful and important images of Renaissance cities. The "Civitates " was the first extensive series of town views that treated its subject matter in an accurate and meaningful way. Earlier collections of town views were far more limited in scope, and often made no real attempt to render the subject city with any degree of realism being simply a record of the existence of a town. Certainly the striking beauty and accuracy of Braun and Hogenberg's production was entirely unprecedented. Earlier collections contained no more than a handful of views, usually only of the more important cities, while the "Civitates " contained literally hundreds of views, including many of smaller towns for which no earlier views are known. Even for the larger, important cities, the "Civitates " is of the utmost importance to the history of their topography. N° de ref. de la librería 72edv81
