BRITTANIA TITLE PAGE SAXTON HOLE

Code: M2919

Cartographer: Hole William

Date: 1607 London

Size: 26*16 cms

This very attractive engraving by William Hole has a design that is based on the work of William Rogers for the smaller sized 1600 printing of Camden's Britannia. Neptune and Ceres flank the central roundel with a map of the British Isles (although showing only the eastern part of Ireland). A seated Britannia at the top of the page is one of the earliest printed depictions of the British allegory. Also shown are small images of a ship, Winchester Cathedral, Stonehenge and a swimming pool, apparently Roman Bath.

Marginal reinforcement. on right not affecting map.

Good hand colour

Very good condition.
