Description :Very desirable and early town-plan of Tienen. "Shown from the southwest shows the formerly more populous Belgian town lying within extensive walls that also encompass farmlands and fields. On open ground on the old cattle market, at the very center of the town, rises the large church of Sint-Germanus. Behind it to the left is the Grote Markt, part of which lies on drained marshland, whence the name of the Gothic church on the east side of the square: Onze-Lieve-Vrouw-ten-Poel. Tienen was probably founded around AD 800 by the Holstein branch of the Thienen-Adlerflycht dynasty, on a site already inhabited in Celtic times. In the late Middle Ages the town lived from cloth weaving, caught up in wars in the 16th century, however, it rapidly declined and in 1635 was almost completely destroyed." (Taschen, Braun and Hogenberg, p.226.)

From volume one of the greatest publication in this genre!. The Civitates was compiled and written by George Braun, Canon of Cologne Cathedral. Braun gathered together vast amounts of information and draft plans to produce over 500 city views/maps published in six parts between 1572 and 1617. Most of these engravings were made by Simon Novellanus and Frans Hogenberg, many after drawings by Joris Hoefnagel.

Condition : Latin text on verso. Some marginal tumbling and some very light toning in center fold and some offsetting due to oxidation, altogether very good and in very attractive original colouring.
