FRANCIS HOGENBERGH.

(1555.)

By his hand is extant a print of Queen Mary I. dated 1555. 2 If this was executed in her reign, it was antecedent to that of Parker ; but it might not be done here, or might be performed after her death, and allude only to her era. 3 Under it is written, Veritas Temporis Filia. In the set of Saxton's Maps, he engraved those of Gaul and Belgium. Of his works abroad, Vertue had seen views in Braun's Civitates Orbis Terrarum, 4 printed at Cologne, in 1572, in conjunction with Simon Novellani and George Hoefnagle; and others in Abraham Ortelius's Theatrum Orbis Terrarum, in which he was assisted by Ferdinand and Ambrose Arsen, Antwerpiæ, 1570. The map of England in this collection was the work of Humphry Lhuyd, of Denbighshire, as that of Spain was of Thomas Geminus, whom I have already mentioned. Engraving was on no contemptible foot in

He was a man of singular genius. At Cambridge, at the age of sixteen, he translated Seneca's Œdipus, printed 1581, and intended a translation of Livy. He died in 1594, and is buried at Canterbury, where his brother was dean. He drew and engraved a map of Cambridge, 1574, upon which was R. Lyne, servus D. M. Archiepisc. Cantuar. Angliœ Heptarcha, the genealogical tables of which were engraved by him. In Lysons's Environs, vol. i. p. 175, &c. are many curious particulars relating to Archbishop Parker, and of Queen Elizabeth's frequent visits to him—in order to keep him poor. Remigius Hogenbergh styled himself Servus Archiepisc. Cantuar, 1574.—D.

This expensive work consists of two very large and thick folios ; the first containing 178 plans and views of towns, the second 135. They are drawn and engraved by Francis and Abraham Hogenbergh, Hoefnagle, and others, particularly Henry Stenwick ; the author styles himself both Bruin and Braun. It is a work of uncommon labour, but without method, and some of the cities are repeated. In this collection is the curious print of Nonsuch ; and in the last plate but two of the first volume is a view of the lake Averno : Ortelius and G. Hoefnagle are standing by the lake ; and from seeing birds swimming on it, hunc locum non esse Aornon advertentes.—The Museum copy is in three volumes; the first dated 1572, second 1575, third 1606. There are views of London, Bristol, Norwich, and Chester.—D.
