„Dordracum vulgo Dortt Me Mosa & Walis, cum Linga Meruaqué cingunt Aternam Batave virginis ecce fidem.”
View of Dordrecht, seen over the Merwede, with boats and sailing ships in the foreground.
Coloured copper engraving by Frans Hogenberg from 'Civitates Orbis Terrarum' by Braun and Hogenberg, vol. III, Cologne 1582, plate size 31 x 49,5 cm. Latin edition.
Perfect impression, a few wormholes, most of them in the centre at margins, neatly restored, paper a little bit stained, otherwise very good condition, nice colouring in the old style.
