Four maps, of the major Channel Islands with Holy and Farne Islands on one sheet with descriptive text on the reverse. This finely engraved and detailed map is 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. Speed's county maps were, and remain, amongst the most popular and sought-after on account of their vignettes often showing historical events, archaeological relics, portraits and explanatory notations. Most have the arms of local dignitaries and town plans, in many cases the first of those locations and surveyed by Speed himself. This composite plate lacks the embellishments of the county maps but is finely engraved with decorative cartouches and borders.
