Blaeu, Willem & Jan
DUCATUS EBORACENSIS PARS BOREALIS The Northriding of York Shire
 1646 - Original or least contemporary hand coloring. 15 family crests plus 2 royal crests along top. Last family crest blank. Likely an early state since the extra, blank, crests would then be used by later editions when the new generation's coat of arms could then be colored in. Colorful title cartouche of fishing scene: woman with fish basket on her head, man w pole, 2 men w a net, boy putting fish in basket. North Yorkshire outlined in color, villages, mountains, forests all in color. Paper lightly aged but ZERO foxing, damp staining, soiling, off setting or type bleed thru. FINE map. French text on verso. Large title cartouche lower left [Attributes: Hard Cover]
[Bookseller: Quiet Friends]
