Midle-Sex Described With The Most Famous Cities Of London... : J. Speed

click here to view a large version in a separate window

A very decorative and detailed issue of John Speed's renowned map of the county of Middlesex with inset plans of London and Westminster and views of St. Peter's (Westminster Abbey) and St Paul's (pre-Wren, of course). 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" in which this map first appeared in 1612. Such was the popularity of the atlas and the maps contained therein that the life of the copper printing plate continued into the eighteenth century. Minor repairs but overall a very nice, attractively coloured, example.
