Title : Lubeca Urbs Imperialis … Inclytae Hanseaticae Societatis Caput [on sheet with] Hamburga, Florentissimum Inferioris Saxoniae Emporium..
Map maker : BRAUN,G. / HOGENBERG, F..
Date : Cologne, (1572) 1577.
Size : 12.8 x 18.5 inches. / 32.5 x 47.0 cm.
Colouring : In original colours.

Description :Two very desirable and early town-views of Lübeck and Hamburg.
"LUBECK : The view shows the "City of Seven Spires" on the Baltic Sea seen from the west across the inland harbour, with the city gates - the Holstentor, left, Molentor and Burgtor, right - and the spires of its seven Gothic red-brick churches, all of which evolved out of existing Romanesque churches. Rising magnificently on the left is Lübeck's Gothic cathedral (De Dom). Further right lies the church of St Giles (S. Tillien), then the imperial church of St Peter (S. Petri) and the town Hall.
St Mary's (Unse Lefrowen Karck) served the merchants, city council and people of Lübeck and is considered the mother church of red-brick Gothic architecture in northern Germany: it would provide the model for some 70 churches in the Baltic region. On the far right, finally, is the church of St. James (S. Iakob), dedicated to the patron saint of sailors and fishermen.. ." (Taschen, Braun and Hogenberg, p.86.)

HAMBURG : Showing the city from a low vantage point, reveals its rural character. Left stands the 153-m-high tower of the church of St Nicholas, which was completed in 1517 in the north-German brick-Gothic style. To the right is the spire of St Peter's. The modern city landmark, the Hamburger Michel, was finished in 1786 as the tower of the Baroque church of St Michael.
After the Emperor Frederick I Barbarossa granted the city port rights in 1189 and, therefore, tax exemption on trading with the entire Lower Elbe region, Hamburg grew into a vibrant commercial hub. Boasting up to 600 breweries, the city was the purveyor of beer to the Hanseatic League.. (Taschen, Braun and Hogenberg, p.86.)

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. In very attractive original colouring.
