Braun and Hogenberg Civitates orbis terrarum
Between 1572 and 1617 Georg Braun (1541-1622) and Frans Hogenberg (1535-1590)
published six volumes,
containing about 530 maps of mostly European cities. Georg Braun was the
editor of this series, and Frans Hogenberg was the most important engraver.
They relied mainly on existing maps, but also on maps made by drawings made by
the Antwerp artist Joris Hoefnagel (1542-1600), who had travelled through most
of Western Europe. After Joris Hoefnagel's death his son Jakob continued the
work for the Civitates.
