An attractive and clear printing of John Speed's renowned map of the North and East Ridings of Yorkshire. The map is decorated with plans of Hull and Richmond and the Arms of the Earls of Richmond and Holderness. This finely engraved and detailed map is one of the most sought after of the county and was produced by John Speed, historian, genealogist and cartographer for publication in his "... Theatre Of The Empire Of Great Britain ..." – the first atlas of the British Isles. The copperplate, engraved in the workshop of Amsterdam master map engraver, Jodocus Hondius, was first printed in atlas form in 1612 and remained in use, with amendments and alterations to publishers' imprints until late into the following century. Speed's county maps were, and remain, amongst the most popular and sought-after on account of their vignettes often showing historical events, archaeological relics, portraits and explanatory notations. Many have the arms of local dignitaries and town plans, in many cases the first of those locations and surveyed by Speed himself. This example is of one of the latest issues of the map, showing signs of alterations, the removal of an engraving date, the addition of roads and other features and a revised publisher's imprint "Sold by Henry Overton at the White Horse Without Newgate London" This attractive example has a protective margin added at lower left corner.
