click here to view a large version in a separate window

A simple birds-eye plan of the Inca capital city of Cusco as would have been seen by the Spanish under Pizarro earlier in the sixteenth century. The title appears in a scroll across the top of the view where individual buildings are shown within the walled city. The woodblock plan is set in a page of text from a French language edition of Sebastian Munster's "Cosmographia" and is, as such, one of the earliest printed representations of any New World city.
