recent arrival
The titlepage to "The Theatre Of The Empire Of Great Britaine" is based on the architectural framework that had appeared on an earlier Ortelius titlepage and includes, in a somewhat more ornate form, the figures of a Romane, a Britaine, a Saxon, a Dane and a Norman - each representing, according to Shirley in "Courtiers And Cannibals", "the conquerors (or supposed inhabitants) of Great Britain and they are each garbed according to their epoch". With attractive hand colour, top blank right corner repaired, but a very nice example from the last edition published in Speed's lifetime.
