Description

This is a fine original color example of Braun & Hogenberg’s view of Rome, from an early edition of Braun & Hogenberg’s Civitatus Orbis Terrarum.

This striking work shows Rome as it was c. 1550. Included are various surviving features of ancient Rome: the surrounding walls, the Pantheon, the Coliseum, the Arch of Constantine, and the Forum Romanum. In the left corner in the foreground can be seen the Papal Palace and the Obelisk from the circus of Caligula and Nero.

It presents two figures in the foreground, and two extensive tables of explanations.
