¤ Bird's-eye view of Valletta. From the greatest publication in this genre ! The "Civitates" was compiled and written by George Braun, a Canon of the Cologne Cathedral. Braun gathered together vast amounts of information and draft plans to produce over 500 city views/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.
