Delft in 1622 - Baudartius

after Frans Hogenberg


Willem Baudaert's (Baudartius 1565-1640) Polemographia Auraico Belgica was published in 1622 by Michael Colinius in Amsterdam. It described conditions at the beginning of the 80 Years War in the late 1500's and included this view of Delft. It was derived from an image by Frans Hogenberg.

It is not very accurate. Among other things, if the gate in the middle is the Wateringsloot Poort, then the churches' relative positions should be reversed.
