Description

Rare 16th Century view of Cairo from a hillside opposite the Nile, by the Sienese map maker Matteo Florimi.

Florimi's view is drawn from Braun & Hogenberg's Civitatus Orbis Terrarum, the most important town book of the 16th Century.

Elaborate detail, including fortified walls, buildings, publish places, etc. A number of horsemen and other costumed figures in the foreground.

Condition Description
Trimmed to the neatline and laid on a larger piece of old paper, as was typical of Lafreri School maps.
