Published: from The Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine by John Speed 1676


later hand colouring. 15" x 20". English text verso.

Based on Saxton's mapping of 1579. It should be noted that Monmouthshire is included as part of Wales but Monmouth itself is not shown in the town views on either side of the map - possibly for reasons of symmetry. Notwithstanding a small area re-instatement towards the bottom of the centre fold, a sound, attractive example.
