This four-part image is from the ‘Civitates Orbis Terrarum’ which was compiled by George Braun (1541-1622) the Canon of Cologne Cathedral. Braun produced a total of over 500 city views and maps published in six parts between 1572 and 1617. Most of the engraving was the work of Simon Novellanus and Frans Hogenberg (1535-1590), many after drawings by George Hoefnagel. The four images depict cities in the Mediterranean Sea. The first is of Cagliari, Sardinia, Valetta, Malta, Rhodes and Famagusta in Cyprus. This example with French text to the verso. Koeman II B & H 1 no. 50.
