An attractive map with considerable detail of the four British islands of Anglesey, Isle of Wight, Guernsey and Jersey printed on the same plate - these are important maps being the first individual depictions of each island. The engraving is signed by Gerhardt Mercator, one of the most influential mapmakers of any period and appeared in an French edition of "Atlas Sive Cosmographicae ..." the first application of the word 'atlas' to describe a bound collection of maps and published in 1595. With very pleasing original colour and reinforcement to worn margins, otherwise a very nice example.
