A New Map Of Barkshire : W. Hollar / J. Overton

click here to view a large version in a separate window

An attractive example of this rare map finely engraved by one of the leading engravers of the period. Wenceslaus Hollar engraved this map in 1668, as stated on the map, and copied that of John Speed with Windsor Castle and town displayed in a panoramic view at the top and the county from Hungerford and Oxford to Reading and Windsor beneath. At either side of the view are costumed portraits showing the clothing of a knight of the Garter. The map appeared in editions of Overton's atlas and is sometimes seen bound into eighteenth century histories of the county. This example has repair to centrefold wear and marginal weakness but is, nevertheless, a very acceptable copy of a map we have never previously offered!
