In 1579, in the first atlas of counties of England and Wales, Christopher Saxton's maps frequently showed counties together as geographical regions rather than as independent entities. However, when maps were commissioned for the 1607 edition of William Camden's historical guide to the country, "Brittania", the engravers, William Hole and William Kip, though copying Saxton's detail, depicted each county in a separate engraving. These maps are thus, in many cases, the earliest available detailed maps of their respective counties. Kip's map shows Flintshire alone where the 1579 Saxton edition also included Denbighshire. Camden's "Britannia" with maps by Kip and Hole appeared in three editions of 1607, 1610 and 1637. This particular example comes from the 1610 edition.
