The Countie Of Warwick The Shire Towne And Citie Of Coventre ...
J.Speed - London - - 51 x 39 - Coloured - A decorative map of the county of Warwickshire with inset plans of the towns of Coventry and Warwick. John Speed (1552-1629) is arguably the most famous English cartographer of any period as a result of his atlas "The Theatre Of The Empire Of Great Britaine" in which his maps of the individual English counties appeared. The maps are perhaps the best known and amongst the most sought after of all county maps. The maps themselves were derived from the best and most up-to-date sources available predominantly those of Saxton and Norden. However Speed also made innovations of his own, introducing town plans on many of the maps vignette scenes of topographical, historical or archaeological interest and also the coats of arms of local Earls and Dukes. The overall effect is to produce very decorative, attractive and informative maps. With attractive later hand colour and minor restoration.
