Huntingdon Both Shire and Shire Towne with the Ancient Citie Ely Described.

image

SPEED, John.

Origin: London, George Humble, 1610-23-.

Probably engraved by Jodocus Hondius and published in a composite copy of Speed's atlas without a titlepage. The provenance is speculative, although there is no text on the verso the plate is unchanged from the first edition. The colour is very attractive and reminiscent of maps seen in the Hondius atlases of the early 17th century. As to why the maps were trimmed to the printed area and laid on thick paper is another mystery although it could have been done to form an atlas for a special commission. The former head of the British Library Map Department, R.A.Skelton, in referring to the 1623 edition of the 'Theatre', of which only three copies extant, mentions the large number of loose sheets without text that were published at this time and could be the source of this example.

Condition: Finely coloured, possibly contemporary with publication; dark impression, trimmed to the edge of the printed surface with no apparent loss and laid down on thick paper in the period. No text on verso, small nicks to the edges of the map, hardly noticable, light surface soiling, overall a good example with superb early colour.

Size: 380 x 510mm (15 x 20 inches).
