Description :Bird's-eye town-view of Nysa and Legnica (Poland)
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.

The view of Nysais shown from the northwest. In the middle of the city is the Gothic cathedral of St James, dating from the 14th/15th centuries with its separate bell tower. To the right of this is the town hall tower, and on the far right the Münsterberg gate tower, which is a part of the city wall, built in 1350.

Legnica is shown from the northwest, which is protected by bastions and a moat. The nobles depicted in the foreground illustrate the city's importance. On the left is the castle with its octagonal St Peter's tower and the round St Hedwig's tower, to the right of this is the church of Our Lady and on the far right the Gothic cathedral of SS Peter and Paul.

Condition : Very good to mint condition.
