£460.00
Cologne, 1572-. 335 x 480mm. Full original colour. Plan of Ancona in Italy, published in the first volume of the 'Civitates Orbis Terrarum'.
The original colour is particularly vibrant.
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.
