Two attractive early birds-eye views of Stockholm in Sweden showing the city from the north and south. The ‘Civitates Orbis Terrarum’ 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. This particular item was first published in the fourth volume first issued in 1588. Koeman (1967-70) II B & H 4 no. 38; Van der Krogt (1997-2010) 4 41:1.4.
