Uncommon re-issue of Saxton's map of the county, the first printed map of Norfolk. Christopher Saxton's original map was the first of any individual English county, and formed the precedent for most maps of Norfolk during the seventeenth century. The edition of the original plate published by Philip Lea added roads for the first time, the shield of Henry Howard, Duke of Norfolk, and the arms of Norwich in the inset plan. This edition with the addition of George Willdey's imprint. A good fresh example.
