Anglia Regnum : G. Mercator

click here to view a large version in a separate window

Mercator's name is probably the best known in cartography and his map of England and Wales reflects, in its precision, quality of design and engraving, his skill. First published in the "Atlas Sive Cosmographia ..." the plate continued in use until the 1630's, however the clarity of engraving here suggests this is an early example. This important map is well detailed, shows county boundaries and uses Latinised names for each county. An attractive example in careful hand colour.
