[Title Page] Britannia : W. Hole

click here to view a large version in a separate window

This very detailed engraving by William Hole has a design that is based on the work of William Rogers for the smaller sized 1600 printing of Camden's Britannia. Neptune and Ceres flank the central roundel with a map of the British Isles (although showing only the eastern part of Ireland). A seated Britannia at the top of the page is one of the earliest printed depictions of the British allegory. Also shown are small images of a ship, Winchester Cathedral, Stonehenge and a swimming pool, apparently Roman Bath. Minor marginal reinforcement.
