A rare reissue of this important map, the first published of the counties of Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire, originally published in Christopher Saxton's atlas of England and Wales in 1579. Having acquired Saxton's copperplates, Philip Lea added details such as roads, the town plan of Lincoln at upper left and the coats of arms. When Willdey obtained the plates, later still, he added his own imprint. Laid on archival tissue supporting areas of paper weakness and a small area of reinstated loss in the title, nevertheless an attractive and acceptable example of this cornerstone map.
