1582 – G. Braun & F. Hogenberg – Vindesorium Celeberrimum Anglie
Title: “Vindesorium Celeberrimum Anglie castirum…”
One of the earliest and most beautiful panoramic view of Windsor, the famous English castle seen from the north.
COMMENTED BY BRAUN: “Windsor is a royal castle in England, which, so it is believed, was first built in the time of King Arthur and extended by King Edward III, who added many new buildings. It is situated on a charming hill, eight miles from the capital of London. It is 410 paces from the Thames, which changes its course here from south to north. The castle is surrounded by an unbelievably charming and broad plain […]. There huntsmen and the nobility go hunting with falcons.”
View comes from rare German edition atlas “Civitates orbis terrarum…” published by Georg Braun and Franz Hogenberg, engraved by Georg Hoefnagel in Cologne, 1582.
Good condition. Contemporary hand coloring, strong press on watermarked paper. Centerfold restored, few tiny paper loss and brownish spots present.
