Hantshire Described And Devided : J. Speed / C. Browne

click here to view a large version in a separate window

Rare intermediate issue of John Speed's sought-after map of Hampshire, bearing the imprint of Christopher Browne. Browne evidently acquired the map plates after the issue of Basset and Chiswell, and set about preparing a new edition of the atlas by inserting his own imprint. For some reason, Browne seems to have discontinued the project, and his name is found only on a handful of the maps, including this one. Skelton records only one county atlas assembled by Browne, but examples of the individual maps can sometimes be found in early Henry Overton county atlases. This example has some old outline colour and a small area of verso staining.
