FOLIO CLXXXIX verso and CLXXX recto

A large woodcut extending over Folios CLXXIX verso and CLXXX recto, consisting of two blocks. The blocks on the left has already been used to represent the City of Paris (Folio XXXIX recto). We are at a loss to know whether any part of this illustration is intended to be authentic. We may assume the river in the foreground to be the Elbe or the Seine. The walls may be those surrounding the City of Paris, the City of Magdeburg, or any other municipality. It is futile to attempt to identify any of the structures within the walls.
