The magnificent coat of arms of Charles II dominates this heraldic frontispiece - "The Achievement Of Our Soveraigne King Charles II With The Armes Of The Severall Kings That Have Anciently Reigned Within His Dominions". Around this central panel are 38 smaller shields of parts of the realm from ancient times including shields denoting the Romans, Saxons and Normans, amongst others. The plate appeared in the 1676 edition of "Theatre Of The Empire Of Great Britain ..." - the most complete of the atlas known as Speed's although he had been dead since 1629 - the maps endured. A fine example with strong and very attractive hand colour.
