¤ 4 vues gravées sur une planche publiées dans le "Civitates Orbis Terrarum". Goa est un État de l'Inde, situé sur la côte sud-ouest. La région fut une partie des colonies portugaises d’Inde, formant avec Daman et Diu, Dadra et Nagar Haveli, l’État Portugais de l'Inde. - Showing four coastal views of fortified cities, which were important to European trade with Asia. Anfa (today Casablanca) and Azaamurum in Moroc, Goa and Diu on the western coast of India.
The panoramic view of Goa is showing Albuquerque’s armada bombarding the town, an event that actually happened the year after the date on this engraving. The impediments in the channel (foreground) may have been defenses against his ships. Goa’s shipyards can be seen to the right of the town, enclosed by a wall that runs down into the channel.
From the greatest publication in this genre! The "Civitates" was compiled and written by George Braun, Canon of Cologne Cathedral. Braun gathered together vast amounts of information and draft plans to produce over 500 city views and plans published in six parts between 1572 and 1617.
Most of these engravings were made by Simon Novellanus and Frans Hogenberg, many after drawings by Joris Hoefnagel.
