The first great text desribing the British nation, its antiquities, and culture, Britannia was the benchmark by which later chorographers defined themselves. It is organized by a set of country descriptions arranged according to the tribes of the Saxon Heptarchy. Lavishly illustrated with fifty-seven large maps, Britannia remains an indispensable work on history, geography, and national identity from the age of Elizabeth I to the end of the Georgian era.
