£450.00
Cologne, 1572-. 335 x 475mm. Full original colour. Two pairs of wax stains in top margin not affecting map area, colour blemish on lower printed border. Plan of Augsburg in Germany, published in the 'Civitates Orbis Terrarum'.
The quality of the original colour makes this a superior example.
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.
