About this Item

(HOEFNAGEL, Joris). GADES AB OCCIDUIS INSULAE PARTIBUS. Double-page folio view of Cadiz, Spain, signed Georg Hoefnagel, 1564. From Volume V, no. 5. of CIVITATES ORBIS TERRARUM, Cologne, Georg Braun and Franz Hogenberg (1572-98). Hand-colored. 14 1/2 by 19 1/2 inches. Light toning and wrinkling to margin; smudges to key panel and central fold, still a very good print. Of the artists involved in the Civitates, Hoefnagel was the most well-known, as calligrapher, painter, miniaturist and cartographer. A monk, a pilgrim, and fishermen are in the foreground of this peninsular city. Two vignettes show a fortress firing upon ships, and sailors gambling on the shore neared moored galleys. A leopard from the Indies and a toucan from Peru indicate Cadiz' foreign trade. (Koeman, Atlantes Neerlandici p.22). Bookseller Inventory # 75723
