recent arrival
From the first world atlas produced in England, "The Prospect Of The Most Famous Parts Of The World", John Speed's map of France is a typically decorative "carte a figures". Side panels depict costumed figures, while above are vignettes of notable places including Orleans, Paris, Calais, Bordeaux and Poitiers. Text on the verso in English provides a seventeenth-century description of the country. John Speed is one of the best-known map-makers of all time - his skills are expertly displayed in this decorative map. Centrefold, upper margin and a split within the printed area all reinforced. Nevertheless, a decorative and sought-after map.
