Slusa, Teutonicae Flandriae Opp. Admodum Elegans

Fine early plan of Sluis, in Zeeland, published by Braun & Hogenberg.

The town received city rights in 1290. In 1340, the Battle of Sluis was fought nearby at sea.

In 1587, during the Eighty Years' War, the town was captured by Spanish troops under the Duke of Parma and was retaken in 1604 by a Dutch and English force under Maurice of Nassau.

Georg Braun (1541-1622) was born and died in Cologne. His primary vocation was as Catholic cleric; he spent thirty-seven years as canon and dean at the church St. Maria ad Gradus, in Cologne. Braun was the chief editor of the Civitates orbis terrarum, the greatest book of town views ever published.  His job entailed hiring artists, acquiring source material for the maps and views, and writing the text. In this role, he was assisted by Abraham Ortelius. Braun lived into his 80s, and he was the only member of the original team to witness the publication of the sixth volume in 1617.
