About this Item

Uncoloured copper engraving 3.5 x 5 inches. English text on verso plus 2 pp., of the text from the atlas still joined to the map as published. An attractive example. The rare Kent map from the so-called 'Miniature Speed' county atlas. Pieter van den Keere issued a miniature atlas of the English Counties in around 1605 based on Christopher Saxton's atlas of 1579. Subsequently the map-plates were reprinted by W.J. Blaeu and then acquired by George Humble the London publisher of John Speed's 'Theatre of the Empire of Great Britain'. He had the old plates reworked with English titles and 23 new plates engraved - they were issued in 1627 as a 'pocket atlas' under the title 'England Wales Scotland and Ireland described from a farr larger voulume by John Speed'.
