John Speed (1552-1629) is arguably the most famous English cartographer of any period as a result of his atlas "The Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine" in which this map of Derbyshire was published. Because they are so informative and decorative, the individual maps are the best known and among the most sought-after of all county maps. The maps themselves were derived from the best and most up-to-date sources available. However, Speed also made innovations of his own such as introducing town plans on most of the maps: here a town plan of Derby is shown. He also included the coats of arms of local Earls and Dukes and often the royal arms. Despite some marginal and centrefold reinforcement this is an attractive example of a decorative map.
