SAXTON, Christopher & William Hole.
A wonderful county map of Cheshire from William Camden’s historic and important atlas ‘Britannia’; first published in 1607. Originally, in 1586, Camden’s work was a detailed historical and topographical description of Britain. Hole & Kip added their maps to this work in 1607. The maps are heavily based on the earlier work by the Elizabethan cartographer Christopher Saxton. This map comes from the second edition, printed only 3 years later. Interesting embellishments add and complement this very early county map.
