|Braun & Hogenberg.|
Cologne, 1617. 375 x 475mm. Coloured. A view of the Royal Seat of San Lorenzo de El Escorial, the Spanish royal residence just to the north of Madrid.
One of the few views in the 'Civitates Orbis Terrarum'.
The 'Civitatis Orbis Terrarum' was the first methodical series of town plans, issued in six volumes between 1572 & 1617. The plans were collected from different sources, resulting in a wide range of artistic styles, and were engraved by Franz Hogenberg, with a text edited by Georg Braun. Designed as a sister publication to the Ortelius atlas, the 'Theatrum Orbis Terrarum', it included many of the earliest extant plans of many places, including London.
This is a genuine antique print, published at or about the date specified, but guaranteed over 410 years old.
