John Speed's renowned map of the Heptarchy shows Britain in Anglo-Saxon times divided into its seven kingdoms, and is renowned for the flanking side border illustrations of historical scenes. On the left are portraits of the seven original kings and, to the right, scenes of each kingdom's subsequent conversion to Christianity. This finely engraved and detailed map is most sought after and was produced by John Speed, historian, genealogist and cartographer for publication in his "... Theatre Of The Empire Of Great Britain ..." – the first atlas of the British Isles. Most often seen with English, or Latin, text printed on the reverse, this is a rare example of the map's first edition. The copperplate, almost certainly engraved in the workshop of Amsterdam master map engraver, Jodocus Hondius, was first printed in atlas form in 1612 and remained in use, with amendments and alterations to publishers' imprints until late into the following century. Light reinforcement of lower centrefold but, overall, a very acceptable and attractive example..
