This is an excellent and highly sought after example of Blaeu's map of Cambridgeshire.
It is a beautiful example of the height of decorative Dutch map-making.
It is embellished with two royal crests, the arms of seven noble families, Cambridge University and 16 colleges. The map itself is filled with detail of the countryside including forests, parks, cities and villages.
Excellent hand colour
Very good condition.
" Blaeu maps are renowned for the consummate care and attention apparent in every stage of production - using only the best paper with finely engraved plates and a high standard of printing. The county maps have decorative title cartouches and often depict the coats of arms of those families with important county links. "
