Map of Palma

This hand coloured plate is from the German edition of Braun and Hogenberg's Civitates Orbis Terrarum, Book V. The Civitates Orbis Terrarum, a six volume atlas containing over 500 maps of all major cities in Europe, Asia, Africa and America, was published between 1572 and 1617. The atlas is one of the most significant works in the history of cartography, being the first atlas to systematically and graphically depict the cities of the world. The Map Collection holds many fine examples of early printed maps.
