Brightstowe In Engellandt : D. Meisner

click here to view a large version in a separate window

One of the most curious plans of Bristol with extraordinary decorative vignettes. An attractive plan of Bristol by Daniel Meisner originally from the "Thesaurus Philo-Politicus" whose publication was begun in Frankfurt in 1623. With the number G45 (alphanumerics were added to a reprint) in the upper right corner this particular example is from the later Nuremberg reprint of 1637 or later in "Sciographia Cosmica". The finely engraved, miniature bird's eye view is surmounted by a Latin motto at the top of the page and German and Latin verse beneath the map. It also has rather curious decoration in the foreground showing a huntsman taking aim at a beer-swilling monkey. A rare and early view of the city.
