Salopiae Comitatus ... 1577 : C. Saxton

click here to view a large version in a separate window

Christopher Saxton's detailed map of Shropshire with attractive original colour. The maps from Saxton's atlas formed the basic cartography for most of the country for the next 150 years. An attractive example of the first printed map of the county. 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 Remigius Hogenberg, a Dutch engraver who produced several of the maps in this great atlas. The plate is elegantly engraved with with hills in distinctive and naive profile, the royal coat of arms and those of the courtier Thomas Seckford, the instigator of the project to survey and publish the work as Saxton's patron. With only marginal reinforcement a fine example of this rare and most important of county maps.
