The British Isles divided into its Anglo-Saxon kingdoms with magnificent vignette illustrations on either side showing the early Saxon Kings to the left and the conversion of Saxon Kings to Christianity on the right. Jansson's map used Blaeu's as a model, who in turn had referred to Speed's Heptarchy of 1611. Blaeu and Jansson both draw on the work of contemporary miniature masters to recreate the background scenes in each of their vignette views. Thus the Saxon Kings stand before very grand and carefully executed backgrounds showing towns, villages and scenes of battle. The conversion scenes all take place in equally grand architectural surroundings. A history within a history, displayed in one of the best known and most decorative maps of Britain. This example remains a good impression although it appeared in later edition of G.Hornius's historical atlas. One small paper defect repaired otherwise a very decorative copy of a famous and sought-after map.
