Copper engraving, original color, mm 365x465. Fascinating bird-eye view, showing Lisbon from the sea. From “Civitates Orbis Terrarum”. 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 Georg Hoefnagel. Very good example.
