Great Britain – an old map by John Speed


An Old Map of Great Britain by John Speed

The monotone map of the Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland was created as a general introduction to the series of regional and County maps in Speed’s atlas The Theatre of the Empire of Great Britain. It is the only map to show all three of the kingdoms on one page. It also usefully placed the British Isles geographically, with respect to Europe. There are superb old town plans of both  London and Edinburgh, also beautifully detailed are the Hebridian Islands, The Isles of Scilly and the Isles of Orkney. Cherubs, sea monsters and galleons are in abundance.

A supreme achievement in cartography and engraving. Be sure to view our complete collection of vintage maps.
