One sheet only showing the (south) west of England (south coast along to Isle of Wight) and Wales with ornamental title cartouches incorporating classical figures. Frederick De Wit (1610-1698) was a prolific Dutch engraver and publisher, active in Amsterdam in the second half of the seventeenth century. He acquired a number of copperplates from the sale of the Blaeu and Jansson stocks to supplement his own plates, thus having a stock of about four hundred maps. De Wit's own maps are noted for the fine standard of engraving, invariably well designed and decorative. They were very popular amongst his contemporaries, being reprinted many times both by himself and his successors, the Mortiers. This example having the imprint of Covens and Mortier is a later issue, c.1720. With full and attractive original colour this example is a little faded with minor creasing and paper defects repaired.
