Comments: Town plan of Arras in France, including the coat of arms. From the city atlas "Civitates Orbis Terrarum", a collection of city views and plans created as a companion to Ortelius' "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum". The editions were published between 1572-1617. This edition has Latin text on back and is from Volume I. A few small tears to left and right edges. Expert repairs to centerfold. Minor creasing at top edge. Georg Braun (1541-1622) was a Catholic cleric who edited the "Civitates orbis terrarum," a collection of 546 prospects, bird's-eye views and maps of international cities. Hogenberg created the tables for the first 4 volumes. Together, these two geographers created a work that set new standard for cartography for the next century. This plan of Arras demonstrates the high quality of their work.

Let me take a moment to let you know how pleased I am not only with your timeliness and help, but also your honesty and commitment to your customers. As an instructor at Duquesne University, I am always telling my students about responsibility and, lately, some of the book dealers have given me unnecessary difficulties... I am very pleased with the service I received from your company and will inform my fellow faculty members that they can look forward to professional service from your book shop. Again many thanks and I look forward to future dealings with your company. - Tom W.
