Staffordshir : P.Van Den Keere

Pieter van den Keere (1571-1646) was an active Dutch engraver best known for his collection of pocket-sized maps of the British Isles, assembled in about 1605. The maps, reprinted by Willem Blaeu in 1617, were subsequently acquired by Speed's publisher George Humble in c.1620. Those plates which showed separate counties were re-engraved, with the titles now in English, and plate numbers added. For those counties previously combined on one sheet, Humble substituted new plates, depicting the counties separately. The atlas was known as the "miniature-Speed" and was frequently reprinted, from 1627 onwards, often to coincide with folio editions of Speed's maps. Van den Keere also engraved the plates for the miniature edition of Speed's "Prospect", published in 1646. Van den Keere - often known as Kaerius - also engraved a large number of foreign maps at miniature, quarto and folio sizes and his plates were, in some cases, re-published well into the eighteenth century. This map is from a 1666 edition of the so-called "miniature-Speed" and shows the county of Staffordshire.
