A good example, with wide margins, of Jansson's map of Canterbury. The walled city is clearly depicted with the castle in the foreground and Christ Church dominant. The map was published in Jansson's town book, "Theatrum Praecipuarum Urbium Positarum Ad Septentrionalium ...". This plate is a re-engraving (with the costumed figures removed and the title cartouche altered) of Braun and Hogenberg's map of the cathedral city, from whom Jansson had acquired plates from the "Civitates Orbis Terrarum" in 1653. Around the map are coats of arms of the church, the bishopric and the city as well as the Royal Arms. Blank verso.
