16th century costumes of DithmarschenBraun & Hogenberg.
Diversi Dithmarsorum et vicinarum gentium habitus.
Cologne, 1598. 365 x 500mm. Coloured. Depictions of costumes worn by the inhabitants of Dithmarschen, a district of Schleswig-Holstein, Germany, published in the 'Civitates Orbis Terrarum'.
Among the figures are armed men, married and unmarried women from Dithmarschen and Eiderstedt, with the dress styles of Eiderstedt, Ockholm, Nordstrand and the Islands of Föhr, Sildia and Stapelholm.
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.
