A fine and very attractive armorial frontispiece from John Speed's monumental atlas of the British Isles. The magnificent coat of arms of James I dominates the heraldic frontispiece - "The Achievement Of Our Soveraigne King James As He Nowe Beareth With The Armes Of The Severall Kings That Have Aunciently Raigned Within His Nowe 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 engraving is signed by Jodocus Hondius, noted Dutch mapmaker and engraver, and who was responsible for the engraving of most of Speed's county maps. Trimmed close at left side with protective margin added.
