Magna Britannia Complectens Angliae, Scotiae Et Hiberniae Regna : J. B. Homann

click here to view a large version in a separate window

A magnificent map of the British Isles with an equally magnificent title cartouche. A portrait of Queen Anne is held aloft by cherubs whilst the Royal arms and an allegorical female figure leaning on a globe sit beneath the title itself. The map was published in the "Atlas Novus Terrarum ..." Original colour is used to emphasise each of the kingdoms, and some detail of the European coasts is included from Montreuil to Leeuwarden. Verses on the banner refer to Anne's success in unifying England and Scotland. Minor restoration to edges, but an attractive and detailed map.
