Description :A bird's-eye view plan of Dordrecht by Braun and Hogenberg. COMMENTARY BY BRAUN: "The cathedral, consecrated to Our Lady, is renowned for its beauty. All the Rhine wines that are exported from Germany to the Netherlands, as well as all the grain, come together in this city, which is an important city of trade and a famous stapulum. [...]
Stapulum is taken from Latin and is used by the French and the Germans to mean a place that has been granted privileges by a prince and where one can import and trade in wine, cereals and other foreign wares."
This second engraving of Dordrecht offers a bird's-eye view of the important centre of trade. On the right, at the end of the canal that traverses the entire city, stands the Grote Kerk cathedral mentioned by Braun. The ships on the Merwekade underline Dordrecht's role as a river port.
For many towns, in particular those on waterways or major trade routes, staple rights were the basis of their prosperity and thriving commercial activity.
Condition : Paper slightly age toned. A flattened wrinkle in top left corner. Latin text vice versa.
