The first volume of the Civitates Orbis Terrarum was published in Cologne in 1572. The images reproduced herein provide a remarkable view of the period from Cuzco in South America to Calcutta in india. With some 70 cities illustrated, this book interprets what can be seen in the 16th Century maps and how that differs from today's cities - from costumes to heraldry- that each of the maps shows.
