Franz Hogenberg created a work entitled Civitates Orbis Terrarum which contained 546 bird's-eye views and maps of the world's cities. (Stockholm and Bergen are just two examples).  Thereafter, between 1572-1616, George Braun spent years editing Hogenberg's work.

This image - from the updated work - depicts historic Montpellier as it appeared in 1572.
