The Countie And Citie Of Lyncolne Described ... : J.Speed

click here to view a large version in a separate window

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". Because they are so informative and decorative, 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 most of the maps: here Lincoln is shown. He included the coats of arms of local Earls and Dukes and often the Royal arms. Repairs to the centrefold and a tear to the lower left.
