Tunes Urbs - Tunetis Urbis, ac Novae Eius Arcis, et Guletae, quae Philippo Hispan Regi Parent

Nice old color example of Braun & Hogenberg's important early town view of Tunis.

The image shows a lively port scene, with ships in the foreground in the outer harbor, several canals to the inner harbor and the extensive fortifications along the water, with the city proper on higher grounds beyond the inner harbor.

The view appeared in Braun & Hogenberg's Civitatus Orbis Terrarum, the most important town view book of the 16th Century.

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.
