Early Views of Four Italian Cities

Siena/ Parma/ Palermo/ Trapani. BRAUN, G. and HOGENBERG, F. [Cologne, 1572]
Parma/ Sena/ Palermo/ Drepanum . 14 ¼ x 18 ¼ inches
Fine hand color; fine condition.


First issue of this elegant quartet of panoramas, in a beautiful example. The Italian cities of Parma and Siena are depicted in bird’s-eye format, emphasizing their fortifications and principal structures. The Sicilian cities of Palermo and Trapani are presented as panoramas to better display their busy waterfronts. A very attractive example with an unusually bold, sharp strike, on fine, heavy paper.
