A fine panoramic view of Tunis above illustrates the Spanish campaign to occupy the city in 1535. Further battles are illustrated below near Susa in 1540 and Penon de Veles in 1564. They come from the ‘Civitates Orbis Terrarum’. This work was compiled by George Braun 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, many after drawings by George Hoefnagel. Koeman II B & H 2 no. 57; Fauser, A. 14325.
