1575 – F. de Belleforest – Bude


Title:                      “Bude, appellee vulgairement Ofen, qui est la royale, & principale ville du royaume de Hongrie; du chasteau de laquelle nous avons icy pourtraict la figure.”​

Very rare panoramic view of Buda, Budapest, Hungary from Belleforest revised French edition of Münster’s cosmography under the title “La Cosmographie universelle de tout le monde“.
Although the content of the work is based on Münster’s cosmography, most of the views have been re-engraved and differ for the most part from Münster’s original. In addition, Belleforest created numerous views that can be found only in his work.

Leaf size:                37,5 x 23,3 cm
