Early View of Gdansk in a Fine Example

Gdansk. BRAUN, G. & HOGENBERG, F. [Cologne, 1575]
Dantzigt. 12 3/4 x 18 3/4 inches.
Fine hand color; fine condition.


This superb view of Poland’s primary seaport appeared in Braun & Hogenberg's Civitatis Orbis Terrarum, the first printed atlas of city plans and views. It accurately portrays the Town Hall Spire (marked Das Rhathaus on the view), the Church of Saint Mary (Die Phare Kirch) and more than a dozen other city landmarks.
