Description :Decorative town-view of Rostock on the banks of the Warnow River, which is busy with ships and boats.
Rostock is the largest city in the present German state of Mecklenburg on the Baltic coast and was a major trading settlement and member of the important Hanseatic League in the sixteenth century.
The panoramic view shows the three sections of the city each gathered around a magnificent church: St. Peter's Church, St. Mary's Church, and St. James's Church.

Frans Hogenberg (1535 Mechelen - Cologne 1590) was a copper engraver and etcher. Georg Braun (1541 - Cologne - 1622) was a geographer and publisher. Both edited the first comprehensive and systematically designed atlas with town views and plans from all over the world. The collection 'Civitates Orbis Terrarum' was published from 1572 until 1618 and ultimately 6 volumes contained more than 500 copper engravings together with a huge amount of textural information.
