Description :This plan of Cambridge originally appeared in Braun & Hogenberg's Civitates Orbis Terrarum in 1575. Jansson acquired the plate after the death of Abraham Hogenberg. He removed the figures in the foreground and published it in his town books. The plan provides an excellent view of these colleges and the beautiful surrounding countryside. A key at top identifies 19 locations including Peterhouse, King's College, Jesus College, Christ College, Magdalen College, and the castle that was built by the Normans in 1068.
The Latin title is sometimes confused with Canterbury because Cambridge was originally known as Grentabrige or Cantebrigge (Grantbridge), and the river that flowed through it was called the Granta. Over time the name of the town changed to Cambridge and the river became known as the River Cam. Latin text on verso.
The map has full margins the printed area 330 x 440 mm sheet size 460 x 580 mm.
Condition : Very good condition strong impression and beautifully hand coloured the map has be sized consequently it has a stiff feel.
