Notes:
Collection of views and maps of the cities and towns of Alsace. Part of the 21-volume set of townbooks known collectively as the Topographia Germaniae, published between 1642 and 1688. The text was provided by the German geographer, Martin Zeiller. With over 2000 plates, the series was the most extensive publication of its kind. Most of the plates were engraved by Matthäus Merian (1593-1650) and his sons Matthäus (1621-1687) and Caspar (1627-1686).
Includes Wenceslaus Hollar's etching of Strasbourg cathedral. The views of Emmerich, Fleckenstein, Freiburg im Breisgau, and Strasbourg have been incorrectly attributed to Hollar. See: Pennington.
