Interesting folio sheet with views of the vicinity of Seville. The three main views are of the ruined fortress of Sant Juan on a hill above the Rio Guadlqueuir de Sevilla; the medieval village of Gerena; and a view of a cemetery with 3 important tombs. These views are flanked by engravings of fabulous stone towers on each side. One tower shows a cutaway with a man on horseback ascending the stairs. These views were engraved by Georg Hoefnagel in 1565.
Beautiful old color. Minor printer's crease, still fine.
