About this Item

Map. Engraving with hand coloring. Image measures 15 x 20". This wonderfully decorated map depicts the island of Anglesey off the northwest coast of Wales. The island is centered on the map and labeled with towns, rovers, as well pictorial mountains and trees. A strapwork title cartouche features the coat of arms of England flanked by a lion and a unicorn. Below, two elegant ships sail the beautifully patterned ocean, surrounding an elaborate and colorful compass rose. In the lower left corner of the map, showing part of Wales, is an ornamental scale topped with strapwork, cherubs, a peacock, and the country's coat of arms. A similar border frames the inset of Beaumaris in the upper right of the map, which shows a plan of the port city labeled according to a key, including its famous castle. The map appeared in Speed's atlas, "The Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine." It is in good condition with but margins are cropped. Expert repair to right corners. John Speed (1552-1629) is widely considered to be the most famous English cartographer of the 17th century. His atlas "The Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine" contained the first set of individual county maps of England and Wales, as well as significant town plans that are in many cases the first visual records of their subjects. This map of Anglesey is a beautiful example of his work. Bookseller Inventory # 247261
