Seller: cwest3126 (1,975) 100%, Location: Sheffield, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 302902634791 This is a copy of a map of Somerset by John Speed and was initially printed in the 1600's. There is also a small plan of Bath on the map. Overall it measures 15" x 11" (38cm x 28cm). This map is a book plate taken very carefully from a book of maps printed in 1988. It is printed on good quality paper but as it is from a book it is on 2 seperate pieces of paper. The join between the 2 pages is very good, check the photos for more details. The map is beautiful, the colours are vibrant and overall it's in very good condition. On the rear is the description of the map and the area as it was in the 1600's. John Speed’s maps were the first to show all the counties of Britain with towns, villages and boundaries as they were at the time as they were at the time of Elizabeth I. With the first known ‘aerial’ maps of towns, illustrations of battles, portraits of royalty, they are considered to be an elaborate work of art. I have a couple of these maps framed on my walls at home and can say with all honesty that they look fabulous! Please ask if you have any questions or want more information. It will be posted to you in a cardboard backed envelope. I have lots of other maps for sale and will combine postage prices if you wish to buy any others.
