Copper engraving, with near-contemporary hand-colouring. Landscape format: paper size 493x577mm; plate size 370x470mm. With French text on verso: 'La VII Table d'Angleterre, Portant Les Comtez de Warwic, Northamton.'. Small split at fold in lower margin, not affecting plate area. Slight toning. One of the four Mercator-Hondius maps recording the 'quarters' of Britain. In 1604 Hondius bought the plates of Gerard Mercatorís atlas, added some 40 maps and, from 1606, published enlarged editions in many languages still under Mercatorís name, but with his own name as publisher. These atlases have become known as the Mercator/Hondius series. The following year the maps were re-engraved in miniature form and issued as a pocket Atlas Minor.
