Description  
Greg Braun(1541-1622) and Frans Hogenberg (1535-1590) were co publishers of the monumental ‘Civitates Orbis Terrarum’, ‘the earliest systematic city atlas’, published in Cologne from 1572 onwards, and in which these plates appeared. Designed as a companion to Ortelius’ world atlas the ‘Theatrum’, this enormous work, which was expanded to incorporate over 500 plans and views, was among the greatest achievements in the history of cartography.
