Views of the five northern and western African coastal towns on one sheet: Tangiers, Tzaffin, Septa (Ceuta), Arzila, and Sala. Latin text on verso.

Braun and Hogenberg's Civitates Orbis Terrarum was the single most important town book of the 16th Century. The work grew to six volumes from 1572-1618. It was the first atlas of towns, places, and views showing the known world. Braun, a Canon of the Cathedral at Cologne, complied the text on verso describing the views. Hogenberg engraved the views themselves.

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.
