About this Item: Cologne: G. von Kempen, 1582., 1582. Single sheet (15 6/8 x 20 4/8 inches; 12 x 18 6/8 inches to the neat line). Fine engraved views of the cities of Leeuwarden and Franeker, the titles within fine mannerist strapwork cartouches, all with exceptionally fine deep, rich original hand-colour in full, with German text on the verso (some marginal staining). Magnificent views of the cities of Leeuwarden and Franeker in Friesland, from the very rare German edition of George Braun and Frans Hogenberg's landmark "Civitates orbis terrarium", completed in Cologne between 1572 and 1618, and among the most beautiful and important images of Renaissance cities. Both cities were early to side with William the Silent (William I, Prince of Orange 1533 -1584) during the Dutch Revolt. The "Civitates " was the first extensive series of town views that treated its subject matter in an accurate and meaningful way. Earlier collections of town views were far more limited in scope, and often made no real attempt to render the subject city with any degree of realism being simply a record of the existence of a town. Certainly the striking beauty and accuracy of Braun and Hogenberg's production was entirely unprecedented. Earlier collections contained no more than a handful of views, usually only of the more important cities, while the "Civitates " contained literally hundreds of views, including many of smaller towns for which no earlier views are known. Even for the larger, important cities, the "Civitates " is of the utmost importance to the history of their topography. Seller Inventory # 72edv89
