Description :Very desirable and early town-view of s-Hertogenbosch. "s-Hertogenbosch was granted a municipal charter in 1185 and in the late Middle Ages it was a market center for farmers from the surrounding region, who traded here in linen spun from flax and cloth woven from wool. Besides having been a center of the cloth industry, 's-Hertogenbosch was a distribution point for wine, fish and sandstone, and was of cultural significance: the painter Hieronymus Bosch lived and worked here and the humanist Georgius Macropedius, really Joris van Lanckfelt, was a teacher at the Latin school in 's-Hertogenbosch. Situated on a sandy ridge in the middle of marshes and strongly fortified, this strategically important city was for a long time considered impregnable. The Dutch Revolt in the 16th century put an end to the economic prosperity it enjoyed in the late Middle Ages. . ." (Taschen, Braun and Hogenberg, p.57.)

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. Old repair of split upper part center fold, 4 cm. into engraved area. Altogether very good and in very attractive original colouring.
