Antique Maps by Braun & Hogenberg

Georg Braun, born 1542 and Frans Hogenberg, born around 1536, German publishers and engravers, have issued the famous six volume town book Civitates Orbis Terrarum between 1572 and 1618. The volumes originally published in Latin, follow by German and French translations. The plates passed to Jan Janssonius who reissued the town books in 1657 while removing the costume figures on the plates. Braun died in 1622, Hogenberg in 1588.
