Cornubia Sive Cornwallia : J. Blaeu

click here to view a large version in a separate window

A fine map from Blaeu publishing house - the pre-eminent cartographers of the Dutch Golden Age. This well known and finely engraved map of Cornwall has a series of well-executed coats of arms with two heraldic emblems finely gilded. Those dignitaries mentioned include Piers Gaveston, Earl of Cornwall and John of Eltham, also earl of Cornwall. Three coats of arms are blank; perhaps the intended subscribers did not pay. The exquisitely coloured title cartouche features locally-caught fish, and ships in full sail engage off the Cornish coast. There is a little staining to edges and the lower wide margin, not affecting the printed area of this attractive map.
