An attractive bird's-eye plan of Cambridge, with north oriented to the left of the page, showing the Castle on the hill, identifying colleges, and with figures in the foreground. French text to verso. Georg Braun (1541-1622) and Frans Hogenberg (1535-1590) were co-publishers of the monumental Civitates Orbis Terrarum, "the earliest systematic city atlas" (Koeman), published from 1572 onwards. Designed as a companion to Ortelius' world atlas the Theatrum, this enormous work, which was expanded to six volumes by 1617 incorporating over 500 plans and views, must be viewed as one of the most ambitious book producing ventures of all time, and certainly, with Ortelius' Theatrum and Blaeu's Atlas Maior among the greatest achievements in the history of cartography.
