Early printing of this magnificent map of Hampshire, with its inset plan of Winchester. As well as the usual decoration of the arms of local nobles, there is an illustration and description of the flight of Empress Maud in a horse-drawn coffin from Winchester to Oxford. John Speed (1552-1629) is arguably the most famous English cartographer of any period, as a result of his atlas "The Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine". The individual maps are the best known and among the most sought-after of all county maps. The maps themselves were derived from the best and most up- to-date sources available. However, Speed also made innovations of his own - introducing town plans on many of the maps, including county boundaries on almost all maps and also the coats of arms of local Earls and Dukes as well the Royal arms. The overall effect is to create decorative, attractive and informative maps.
