AUTHOR:

BRAUN, GEORG, AND FRANS HOGENBERG

TITLE:

Campen. From the Civitates Orbis Terrarum, Vol. 2

CONDITION:

Full period color, 13” x 19-1/4”. Some repairs to centerfold, a bit of soiling, overall nice condition.

DATE:

Cologne, 1575

DESCRIPTION:

This impressive panorama of Campen, The Netherlands, is from Braun and Hogenberg’s six volume Civitates, one of the greatest of all Renaissance illustrated books, the first atlas of world cities. Located between the Zuyder Zee and the Rhine, the Hanseatic Campen was ideally situated for trade, and became one of the most powerful and cities in western Europe. Eventually the silting up of the surrounding wetlands led to the city’s decline.

Here, Campen appears in all of its early splendor, with the Ijseel River in the foreground, its medieval city walls still intact, and the 14th century churches of the Broederkerk and Buitenkerk dominating the skyline.
