Anglia Regnum In Omnes Suos Ducatus, Comitatus, Et Provincias .. : F.De Wit

This is a good example of the scarce first edition of this map of England and Wales by De Wit. Shirley suggests this may even be a proof state of the map, lacking many of the place names, all of the hills and some other features. Original outline colour defines the counties and highlights the coat of arms at upper right. The title appears in a simple line at the top of the map. Frederick De Wit (1610-1698) was a prolific Dutch engraver and publisher, active in Amsterdam in the second half of the seventeenth century. He acquired a number of copperplates from the sale of the Blaeu and Jansson stocks to supplement his own plates, thus having a stock of about four hundred maps. De Wit's own maps are noted for the fine standard of engraving, are invariably well designed and decorative. They were very popular amongst his contemporaries, being reprinted many times both by himself and his successors, the Mortiers.
