Hampshire : C. Saxton / P. Lea

click here to view a large version in a separate window

A scarce, important and interesting map of the county of Hampshire. Christopher Saxton's important atlas of England and Wales, the first national survey to be published, was the culmination of, predominantly, his own surveys that were made between 1570 and 1578, and from which thirty three county map plates were engraved by at least seven different engravers. This plate has the signature of Leonard Terwoort of Antwerp, who engraved a number of the maps. The copperplates remained in existence and were re-published over a long period, although not in large numbers, with revisions and additions to the plate - in this case a plan of Winchester, roads and coats of arms were added. A good example.
