Plantin ordered in 1581 entirely new plates, especially engraved for his editions mostly by the brothers Hogenberg, the famous engravers of Ortelius's atlas. Many new and updated city plans are included. The illustrations of this most important work were used by Braun and Hogenberg in their 'Civitates Orbis Terrarum'.
