Civitates Orbis Terrarum is one of the great world atlases and one of the first books to present the chief cities of the world graphically. The first volume, from which these images are taken, was published in Cologne in 1572 and the sixth and final volume was published in 1617. The great cities atlas contains 546 map views of locations from across the globe. The work was largely engraved by Franz Hogenberg and featured contributions from more than one hundred artists and cartographers, the most significant of whom was Antwerp artist Georg (Joris) Hoefnagel. Georg Braun then added figures in local dress and vignettes illustrating the trade, occupations, and habits of sixteenth-century city life.
These maps of Rome and London are produced in partnership with the Irvin Department of Rare Books & Special Collections, University of South Carolina Libraries, where a rare copy of Braun's Civitates Orbis Terrarum, Liber 1 is archived in the John Osman Collection of Braun and Hogenberg
