Anglesey Antiently called Mona, Described 1610.
1616 - London, John Sudbury & George Humble, 1616, Latin text edition. 390 x 510mm. An early impression with good margins. Engraved by Jodocus Hondius, this is one of the most decorative maps of the island, with an inset plan of Beaumaris, armorials and a large compass rose. This example comes from the only non-English edition of Speed's Theatre, produced for the Continental market. Its lack of success makes it comparatively scarce: it was only after 1918 that the British Museum obtained a complete Latin volume. CHUBB: xxiv; SKELTON 11.
      [Bookseller: Altea Antique Maps]
