Cantium Vernacule Kent : J. Blaeu

click here to view a large version in a separate window

A good example of one of the most elegant maps of the county of Kent by one of the most highly regarded mapmaking dynasties of any period. Dutch mapmakers dominated the seventeenth century European publishing industry and supreme amongst many were the Blaeu family, whose maps then, as now, were renowned for their artistic presentation, fine engraving, quality of production and fine in-house colouring. Although based on John Speed's information published 30 years earlier, this is a finer engraving with coats of arms and rural vignettes.
