Title : Marpurg. - Martpurgum Urbs Hassiae Metropolis, Universitate Clara [on sheet with] Cassel. - Cassula, Communiter Cassel, Florentissimu Lanigerae Oppidum..
Map maker : BRAUN,G. / HOGENBERG, F..
Date : Cologne, (1572) 1577.
Size : 13.3 x 18.7 inches. / 33.8 x 47.5 cm.
Colouring : In original colours.

Description :Two very desirable and early town-views of Marburg and Kassel in a first state (no privilege between both views).
"MARBURG : Seen from the east, the city's two most familiar buildings are seen to advantage: the palace on top of the hill (center), where a castle had first been built in the 9th century, and St Elizabeth's church (in front of it on the left). Marburg only assumed importance from 1228, when Elizabeth of Thuringa settled here and began her selfless mission tending the poor and sick. In 1235, just four years after her death, she was canonized and the Teutonic Order embarked on the construction of the early Gothic church of St Elizabeth.
Due to the pilgrims who came from all over Europe to visit Elizabeth's tomb, Marburg's economy flourished. In 1539, however, wishing to halt this pilgrimage, the Protestant landgrave Philip the Magnanimous of Hesse-Marburg had Elizabeth's bones removed from the church. .. ." (Taschen, Braun and Hogenberg, p.88.)

KASSEL : In the center of the picture is St Martin's church, dating from the 14th/15th centuries, the soaring south tower was given its octagonal turret and Italian cupola as late as the 16th century. In the left-hand foreground, on the other side of the Fulda, are the grounds of the Neuer Lustgarten, the forerunner of the present Fuldaaue park, which together with the Karlsaue and the hillside Wilhelmshöhe Berg numbers amongst modern-day Kassel's spacious parks and gardens. First mentioned in records in AD 913, the town evolved out of a castle, from which it also derives its name.
From 1277 Kassel - in alternation with Marburg - was the capital of Hesse. . . (Taschen, Braun and Hogenberg, p.88.)

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. Repair of split center fold and split in lower right part. In very attractive original colouring.
