English County Maps

We have recently made some great additions to our English County Map collection, including some excellent examples from the series of maps included in William Camden’s Britannia. First published in 1586 with only a general map, the later editions of Camden’s Britannia included maps engraved by William Kip and William Hole. These maps were reduced copies of the maps by Saxton and Norden.

Three editions of the Kip and Hole maps may be found; the first is identifiable by Latin verso text, the second (1610) lacks text while the third (1637) displays an engraved plate number.
