The Countie and Citie of Lyncolne Described...

image

SPEED, John.

Origin: London, 1610-16, Latin text edition.

Engraved by Jodocus Hondius, with inset of the City of Lincoln. From Speed's atlas 'The Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine', the Latin edition is arguably the rarest of all editions, being produced for the overseas market. Thomas Chubb states in his book, "The Latin edition of Speed's atlas of great Britain and Ireland is extremely rare, it was not until 1918 that the British Museum obtained a copy." It is even more difficult to find examples in original colour.

Condition: Fine original colour; some oxidisation of the original colour, particularly the green, this has caused some discolouration and minor cracking in some areas, this has been expertly repaired. Some small holes visible when held up to the light, short centrefold split (repaired), other minor discolouration and soiling, otherwise a good example.

Size: 385 x 515mm (15¼ x 20¼ inches).
