Fine Early View of Ghent

Ghent. BRAUN, G. & HOGENBERG, F. [Cologne, 1572]
Gandauum, Amplissima Flandriae Urbs... . 13 x 18 ¾ inches
Superb hand color; expertly mended tear, very good.


One of the earliest plans of the third largest city in Belgium, situated at the confluence of the Schelde and Leie rivers. A numbered key identifies the city’s many landmarks, including the cathedral of Saint Bavo, the church of Saint Nicholas, and the famous Belfry of Ghent. This plan appeared in Braun & Hogenberg's Civitatis Orbis Terrarum, the first printed atlas of city plans and views.
