A fine example of this rare and important map of the county of Worcestershire engraved in 1577 after Christopher Saxton's surveys for the first published atlas of England and Wales. Having acquired Saxton's copperplates, Philip Lea added details such as roads, the plan of Worcester town, coats of arms and some placenames. When Willdey later obtained the plates, he added his own imprint and a charming advertisement for his shop. Although this is a late printing of the Elizabethan plate, the detail is generally still discernible and the attraction of this significant map remains undimmed.
