Title: Tunes Urbs - Tunetis Urbis, ac Novae Eius Arcis, et Guletae, quae Philippo Hispan Regi Parent
Map Maker: Georg Braun & Franz Hogenberg
Place / Date: Cologne / 1590
Nice old color example of Braun & Hogenberg's important early town view of Tunis.
The image shows a lively port scene, with ships in the foreground in the outer harbor, several canals to the inner harbor and the extensive fortifications along the water, with the city proper on higher grounds beyond the inner harbor. The view appeared in Braun & Hogenberg's Civitatus Orbis Terrarum, the most important town view book of the 16th Century.
