A charming and increasingly uncommon map from the series known as 'miniature Speeds'. Although most of the series was engraved by Pieter van den Keere in Amsterdam the maps were published in London from 1627 in a pocket atlas 'abridged from a far larger volume by J.Speed' - although Speed himself had nothing to do with their production. With attractive colour.
