This sheet entitled Carte Pour l'Introduction a l'Histoire d'Angleterre, ou l'on Voit son Premier Gouvernement, et l'Etat Abrege de cette Monarchie sous les Empereurs Romains, et sous les Rois Saxons includes a large inset map of Roman Britain including the English Channel and the western coast of Europe. It also provides a wealth of information on the principal Roman towns across England, Scotland, and Ireland. A miniature map of England entitled Carte d'Angleterre, sous la domination des Rois Saxons appelé heptarchie de ses sept royaumes is enclosed within the text. These maps have been inserted in a text of historical descriptive remarks of the customs and laws of the British people before the conquest of the British Islands by Caesar. The plate is framed by 53 portraits of Kings and Queens from Egbert in 801 to Anne, dated 1701. There is also a key referring to the States belonging to old Brittany, the most well-known princes and the most remarkable cities in Great Britain. The Atlas Historique, Ou Nouvelle Introduction à L'Histoire, in which this first appeared was an immense encyclopedia. published in seven volumes between 1705 and 1720, with later editions appearing in 1732 and 1739, combining a wealth of historical and geographical information with delicate engraving and an uncomplicated composition. This work included studies of geography, history, ethnology, heraldry, and cosmography. A superb example from the golden age of Dutch mapmaking, these maps are now thought to have been engraved by Zacharie Chatelain, primarily after maps by De L'Isle.
