Ceretica Sive Cardiganensis Comitatus - Cardigan Schire : J.Jansson

click here to view a large version in a separate window

A very rare early Dutch map of Cardiganshire. Although Blaeu's county atlas of 1645 was the first of England and Wales to be published in Amsterdam, its maps were not the first of the counties to be engraved and published there. That honour goes to Jan Jansson who produced an incomplete series of British county maps which were published, as loose sheets and occasionally bound into more general atlases, prior to his own complete atlas of British maps in 1646. Each map was finely engraved but was amended for the atlas publication of 1646, many with the addition of coats of arms, alteration of decorative features or cartouches or re-naming of the county, from vernacular English to Latin, or vice versa . This is a fine example of a rare collector's map.
