Suffolke Described And Divided Into Hundreds : J. Speed

click here to view a large version in a separate window

The map is decorated with the arms of the Earls and Dukes of Suffolk, and a detailed plan, with key, of Ipswich. The plan is flanked by figures of Boadicea and Quintus Cerealis, her Roman adversary and victor. John Speed (1552-1629) is arguably the most famous English cartographer of any period, as a result of his atlas "The Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine". The individual maps are the best known and among the most sought-after of all county maps. The maps themselves were derived from the best and most up- to-date sources available. However, Speed also made innovations of his own - introducing town plans on many of the maps, including county boundaries on almost all maps and also the coats of arms of local Earls and Dukes as well the Royal arms. The overall effect is to produce very decorative, attractive and informative maps. Damage to top corners, expertly repaired, and an attractive example.
