Description de l'article : Apud Petrum A Brachel, [1575-1593]., 1575. Hardcover. Etat : Fine. A celebration of the city state in a contemporary Plantijn binding Folio (385 by 280mm), Latin text, four volumes, engraved title-pages and 236 double-page engraved maps, plans, and bird's-eye views, all with fine original hand-colour, occasional stains consistent with age, title and preliminary pages to volume IV with some damage at sheet edge, and worming, fine contemporary blind calf, title within lozenge surrounded by central arabesque, spine in six compartments, recornered, repairs to head and foot of spine, a few volumes with remains of gilt. A fine copy of “the earliest systematic city atlas” (Koeman). The 'Civitates' attempts to present, for the first time, an account of all the major settlements and cities of the world known to Europeans, using a combination of two-dimensional plans, three-dimensional views, and bird's-eye perspectives. The subsequent atlas proved hugely popular with the new urban mercantile elite, who were hungry for information on foreign places. It was intended for the educated reader: far more copies survive in Latin than in the vernacular. In order to obtain accurate representations of the cities illustrated in the ‘Civitates’, Georg Braun (1541-1622), the canon of Cologne Cathedral, established a network of correspondents and artists across Europe who contributed to the project. These included Georg Hoefnagel, Heinrich Rantzau, Jacob van Deventer, and Abraham Ortelius. In fact, Hoefnagel and Ortelius were close friends, travelling extensively throughout Europe, and are often depicted in the foreground of the engraved views. The engravings were executed by Franz Hogenberg and Simon Novellanus. Hogenberg was a close friend of the greatest cartographers of the age, Gerard Mercator and Ortelius, and he was employed by Ortelius to engrave maps for his atlas ‘Theatrum Orbis Terrarum’.The plates are brought alive with their depiction of the individual citizens in the foreground, from the rich merchants of London, and the wild Cossacks of Moscow, to the refined townsfolk of Maastricht. However, Braun's motives for adding figures to the views, went further: as stated in his introduction to the first book, he believed, perhaps optimistically, that his plans would not in consequence be scrutinized for military secrets by the Turks, as their religion forbade them from looking on representations of the human form. Koeman II, pp.10-13; van der Krogt 41:1.1 (1577), 41.1.2 (1593), 41.1.3 (1588), 41.1.4 (1588); Phillips 59. N° de réf. du vendeur 2140

Description de l'article : Cologne: T. Graminaeus, 1572-90., 1572. A striking view of Lutetia, more commonly known as Paris. Taken from Braun and Hogenberg’s famous Civitates Orbis Terrarum. The plan is decorated with an elegant title cartouche, bearing the city’s coat-of-arms; a simple cartouche containing a Parisian poem; and three contemporary dressed figures in the foreground. The former name of ‘Lutetia’ referred to the Gallo-Roman city, which acted as the predecessor to present-day Paris. The Latin edition of Braun and Hogenberg’s atlas frequently uses the original titles to the cities depicted. The map of Paris is presented from a bird’s eye perceptive. This urban layout of the city is illustrated very clearly within the city walls, with the river Seine flowing gracefully around the Ile de la Cite. In the 16th century, under the rule of Henry IV, Paris began to undergo a flourishing shift into a rich capital. The bustling houses are close together, with winding roads connecting the different parts of the city.The Ile de la Cite shows us the Notre-Dame Catherdral, whose building completed 300 years earlier. The Palais de la Citie and Saint-Chapelle sit on the lower half of the Ile; built in the 13th century. The top center gives us a glimpse of la Bastille outside of the Paris city walls, just a few decades before it was made famous during the French Revolution. The ‘Civitates Orbis Terrarum’ (‘Atlas of the Cities of the World’) by Braun and Hogenburg is the second oldest printed atlas in the history of world cartography; and the first atlas of towns. Its principal creators and authors were the theologist and editor Georg Braun, the most important engraver and publisher Franz Hogenberg. Other artists involved were Simon van den Neuvel, Georg Hoefnagel, Jacob van Deventer – to name a few. Although it was published outside of the Netherlands, the Civitates is considered one of the better examples of the Antwerp School of Cartographers, due to its Flemish style of engraving – a trait typical of Dutch atlases from the period. One of the most well-known figures from this school, who also played a key role in the making of this atlas, was Abraham Ortelius. It is frequently thought that the Civitates is the direct and intended companion for Ortelius’ famous ‘Theatrum Orbis Terrarum’ (1570). In addition to this, there is evidence of correspondence between these three great men and their ideas to create such an atlas. The first volume of the Civitates Orbis Terrarum was published in Cologne in 1572. Its sixth and final volume appeared later in 1617. The Civitates was a widespread and enormously successful. It was frequently republished and supplemented with new sections with later editions. The maps it contained became exemplary and references; thus often reproduced in smaller formats as illustrations for books by other publishers. The atlas bares over 500 maps, representing an entire era in the lavish history of town-mapping. Earlier collections of city views were heterogeneous productions, limited in scope, and often made no meaningful attempt to render the subjects with any degree of realism. The Civitates, by contrast, contained hundreds of views, including many of smaller towns for which no earlier representations are known, depicted with unprecedented accuracy. Braun corresponded extensively with map sellers and scholars from different cities and countries to achieve the highest level of accuracy in his mapping. In addition, the authors also carried out their own investigations, through detailed on-location drawings of panoramic views of the towns made from some high point. It took over forty years to collect the hundreds of plans contained in the Civitates. The plans, each accompanied by Braun's printed account of the town's history, situation and commerce, form a lavish armchair-traveler's compendium, and provide a uniquely comprehensive view of urban life at the turn of the sixteenth century. The significance of its being printed in Cologne extends to the city’s independence of being a. N° de réf. du vendeur 72NZ47

Description de l'article : Cologne: T. Graminaeus, 1572-90, 1572. Single page (22 x 16 ½) Full margins showing the plate mark (foxing, browning, paint smear outside margin, center crease tear 3½ in.) A fine, hand-colored map depicting London; taken from Braun and Hogenberg's Civitates Orbis Terrarum. This map depicts Elizabethan London in all of its glory, and is the earliest obtainable, surviving map or view of the city. It provides its viewer with the highest level of accuracy and detail. Braun and Hogenberg take care to highlight and label the significant buildings of London, such as the famous Tower. However, the map offers an in depth look at urban life in the 16th century. The Bull and Bear pits in evidence south of the River Thames, two facilities for "animal sporting" during this time period. The River Thames is teeming with Tudor barges and sailing vessels, perhaps from trading with the Dutch. The only bridge across the Thames is London Bridge which joins the City of London to Southwark. The three cities of London, Westminster, and Southwark are depicted as quite separate entities at this time - a remarkable aspect. In the foreground are four Londoners in traditional Tudor dress. The figures are flanked by text; and above the plan the title is flanked by the Royal and the City of London's coats-of-arms. The 'Civitates Orbis Terrarum' ('Atlas of the Cities of the World') by Braun and Hogenburg is the second oldest printed atlas in the history of world cartography; and the first atlas of towns.

Description de l'article : Cologne: T. Graminaeus, 1572-90., 1572. Single page (22 x 16 ½) Full margins showing the plate mark (foxing, browning, center short tear, chipping.) A striking view of Barcelona and Granada; taken from Braun and Hogenebrg’s illustrative Civitates Orbis Terrarum. The views are decorated with elegant strapwork cartouches, a fine border, and are delicately hand-colored. Figures are seen standing in the foreground of each view, showing an active daily interaction between two Spaniards. The view of Barcelona shows the city from the northeastern slopes of Montjuich, closed off from the pastoral fields by high city walls. The most curious aspect to this view is the rainbow towering over the river. This could perhaps symbolize the good fortune Barcelona experienced from the royal trades it undertook. The royal shipyards, called reales Atarazanas and date from the 13-14th centuries, dominate the waters. The center of the view creates a focus on the Cathedral and the arsenal. Granada’s favorable position at the foot of the fertile grounds of Sierra Nevada is illustrated particularly clearly in this engraving. Around the 8th century, Granada was conquered by the Moors. It functioned as the capital of the independent Moorish kingdom and experienced its greatest successes after 1238. Although Moorish rule in Spain came to an end with the capture of Granada by Ferdinand and Isabella in 1492, the city's link with Moorish culture survived in its architecture, in the layout of its streets and districts, and above all, in the Alhambra fortress. The cathedral of Santa Maria de la Encarnacion became the most important Renaissance church in Spain.

Gorgeous antique map featuring two bird's eye views of Lisbon and Cascael; taken from Braun and Hogenberg's Civitates Orbis Terrarum. Hand-colored and decorated with cartouche and Lisbon coat of arms. Lisbon's appearance in second place in this famous atlas is certainly no accident. Lisbon attained great wealth from the establishment of the Portuguese trade empire between Africa, India, and the Far East. In 1499, Vasco de Gama set out on a voyage of discovery, resulting in colonization of parts of Asia and South America. By the mid- 16th century, it was ranked amongst the largest of the cities belonging to the Civitates. This sheet contains two views of beautiful Lisbon; the top presents the whole city complete with the Romans and Moorish citadels in the background; and lower portion shows the Tower of Belem and the Geronimos Monastery. The view of densely packed houses reflects the idea of how bustling the city must have been for the 16th century. The lower portion of the plan showcases Cascais, a small fishing village in the vicinity of Lisbon. It is depicted here as a low, bird's-eye perspective from the sea. The church of Santa Maria mentioned by Braun in verso served the former Hieronymite monastery (c. 1502-1572).

Description de l'article : Cologne: T. Graminaeus, 1572-90., 1572. Single page (22 x 16 ½) Full margins showing the plate mark (foxing, browning, center 10" tear.) A beautiful trio of bird's eye views of Seville, Cadiz, and Malaga. These three Spanish cities are taken from the famous Civitates Orbis Terrarum by Georg Braun and Frans Hogenberg. The engraving was completed by Frans Hogenberg. This view of Seville presents the city from the southeast barrier, seen from a distance from the land of Guadalquivir. The misfortune of Castile is seen engulfed by the flames - though the event is curious as there has never been a fire of this scale recorded. It may be a symbolic reference to the Spanish Wars. Further out left is the Alcazar, whose originally Almohad architecture was remodelled in the Mudéjar style in the 14th century. Rising above the city centre is the Gothic cathedral which houses the tomb of Columbus. The tall bell tower, called the "Giralda", was formerly a minaret and is today one of the city's landmarks. In the 16th century, Seville profited greatly from the trade it entered with the New World. The fleets from 1537 were heavy with goods, such as wine, salt, corn, and silk. These ships sailed regularly between the two continents, granting riches into the city. The town of Cadiz is depicted from a cavalier perspective; providing us with a glimpse into remnants of the Moorish settlements which flourished here from the 8th to 13th centuries. The fortified town center boasts a large church and fortress. In the 16th century Cadiz served as the so-called "gateway to America" - Columbus embarked upon his second and fourth expeditions from Cadiz harbor. "The illustration of Malaga focuses in particular upon the harbor and thus upon the town's associated importance as a centre of trade. Malaga's occupation by the Moors, which lasted over 700 years and ended only in 1487, in the wake of the Reconquista by King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella, is reflected in the large 11th-century Moorish fortress complex. This is divided into two parts: the lower and the upper fortress. The cathedral (La Yglesia maior) was built after 1528 on top of the former main mosque."(Taschen) The 'Civitates Orbis Terrarum' ('Atlas of the Cities of the World') by Braun and Hogenburg is the second oldest printed atlas in the history of world cartography; and the first atlas of towns. Its principal creators and authors were the theologist and editor Georg Braun, the most important engraver and publisher Franz Hogenberg. Other artists involved were Simon van den Neuvel, Georg Hoefnagel, Jacob van Deventer - to name a few. Although it was published outside of the Netherlands, the Civitates is considered one of the better examples of the Antwerp School of Cartographers, due to its Flemish style of engraving - a trait typical of Dutch atlases from the period. One of the most well-known figures from this school, who also played a key role in the making of this atlas, was Abraham Ortelius. It is frequently thought that the Civitates is the direct and intended companion for Ortelius' famous 'Theatrum Orbis Terrarum' (1570). In addition to this, there is evidence of correspondence between these three great men and their ideas to create such an atlas. The first volume of the Civitates Orbis Terrarum was published in Cologne in 1572. Its sixth and final volume appeared later in 1617. The Civitates was a widespread and enormously successful. It was frequently republished and supplemented with new sections with later editions. The maps it contained became exemplary and references; thus often reproduced in smaller formats as illustrations for books by other publishers. The atlas bares over 500 maps, representing an entire era in the lavish history of town-mapping. Earlier collections of city views were heterogeneous productions, limited in scope, and often made no meaningful attempt to render the subjects with any degree of realism. The Civitates, by contrast, contained hundreds of views, including many of smaller towns for which no ear. N° de réf. du vendeur 72NZ43

Description de l'article : Cologne: T. Graminaeus, 1572-90., 1572. Single page (22 x 16 ½) Full margins showing the plate mark (foxing, browning, center 10" tear.) A stunning hand-colored bird's eye view of Toledo and Valladoild; taken from the Civitates Orbis Terrarum by Braun and Hogenberg. In this view, presented from the opposite bank of the Tajo from the cliffs beside Virgen del Valle, Toledo's striking location above the Tajo River is emphasized. The city and surrounding countryside are rendered with great precision and almost every house seems to be individually drawn. The churches and the Alcaisar rise high above the sea of houses. A wealthy and powerful city up to 1560, Toledo maintained its position as the spiritual capital and cultural centre of Spain for quite a few years, even after Philip II moved his court to Madrid in 1561. Although the civic authorities endeavored to increase the city's appeal through renovations and large-scale expansion, their efforts failed to persuade Philip II to return; with the result that Toledo went into a decline after 1600. Looking below at Valladoild, showcases an elevated viewpoint has been deliberately chosen in order to provide a better overview of the city. The staffage figures in peasant dress emphasize the rural character of the surrounding countryside. Rising prominently in the centre of the city is the church of San Pablo. King Philip II of Spain, who was born in Valladolid in May 1529. In the 15th and 16th centuries Valladolid was the residence of the Kings of Castile and the centre of the Spanish Renaissance. Philip II centralized the kingdom and in 1561 moved his court to Madrid. Valladolid is the capital of the eponymous province and of the Castilla y Lean region.

Description de l'article : Cologne: T. Graminaeus, 1572-90., 1572. Single page (22 x 16 ½) Full margins showing the plate mark (foxing, browning, margin staining, chipping) A stunning trio of views, featuring Montpellier, Tours, and Poitiers; taken from Braun and Hogenberg’s illustrative Civitates Orbis Terrarum. Presented as two smaller plans on top, and a landscape view of Poitiers on the bottom. Montpellier and Tours contain a letter guide to significant buildings within the city proper; Poitiers labels the buildings directly on the plan. Montpellier held its fame for its Cathedral and University. The Notre-Dames-des-Tables, recognizable for the tall spire overlooking the city, was a frequent stopping point for pilgrims on their way to the famed Santiago di Compostela during the Middle Ages. The University was founded in the 13th century, containing schools for medicine, arts, and law. Tours is viewed from a near bird’s eye perspective; showing off the city’s distinctive medieval center. The right bears the late Gothic cathedral of Saint-Gatien (built from 13-16th c). The abbey of Saint-Martin is here in tact – it was later destroyed in a fire in 1562. Poitier, the largest plan on this sheet, is engraved with the most precise detail; allowing a facilitated recognition to the significant buildings. Between the University and Royal Court of Law, Poitiers became an intellectual hub in the 16th century. This is perhaps the main reason for focusing on Poitiers in this sheet.

It took over forty years to collect the hundreds of plans contained in the Civitates. The plans, each accompanied by Braun's printed account of the town's history, situation and commerce, form a lavish armchair-traveler's compendium, and provide a uniquely comprehensive view of urban life at the turn of the sixteen.

Description de l'article : 1588. Bildmaß der Darstellung: 32,5 x 47,5 cm ( Höhe x Breite ). Hier die überaus seltene Vogelschaukarte aus dem Städteatlas *Civitates Orbis Terrarum* des Geistlichen Georg Braun (1541-1622) und des Kupferstechers Franz Hogenberg (1535-1590). Für den 1588 in Köln erschienenen vierten Band der *Civitates* ließen die beiden Herausgeber eine Vogelschau von Hamburg erstellen, nachdem im ersten Band von 1572 lediglich eine Seitenansicht der Stadt präsentiert wurde. Dieser hier vorliegende sehr seltene Kupferstich-Plan zeigt Hamburg um das Jahr 1587 von Südosten her mit der Sankt Jacobi-Kirche noch ohne ihren neuen Turm von 1587/1589 und dem Gebiet der Neustadt (hier im oberen Bildteil zu sehen ) noch außerhalb des Stadtwalls. Im Norden die Alster, rechterhand oben einige wenge Häuser in St. Georg. Kurz nach Erscheinen des vierten Bandes der lateinischen Ausgabe ging vermutlich die Kupferplatte des Hamburg-Plans verloren, so dass für die deutsche Ausgabe von 1590 eine neue Vogelschau gezeichnet und gestochen wurde, die sich wesentlich von der ersten ( hier vorliegenden ) unterscheidet. Das Blatt mit 2 Kartuschen am oberen Bildrand ( incl. Städtewappen ) sowie Titel, am unteren Bildrand links unten eine Bildlegende mit 10 angeführten Positionen, zur Mitte am Unterrand eine Figurengruppe von 4 Personen, rechts außen am Bildrand eine Kartusche mit 2 stehenden Figuren. Die Elbe mit zahlreichen Schiffen. Das Blatt in schönem Altkolorit. Unter Passepartout und Glas gerahmt ( Rahmenmaß: 56 x 69 cm ). Das Blatt gering stockfleckig - von guter Erhaltung. Das Passepartout stärker stockfleckig, der Rahmen gering bestoßen. ( Bitte beachten: Hier kein Versand wegen Bruchgefahr - hier nur Selbstabholung in meinem Ladengeschäft ).
