Description :Four maps from a rare miniature edition of John Speed's "Prospect", first published in 1646. Although Speed's name does not appear on the title-page of the 1646 edition, or on any of the maps, this miniature atlas was most frequently issued bound with the miniature edition of the Theatre, and so is often attributed to him.
The copper plates for the atlas were engraved in Amsterdam, by Pieter van den Keere, Jodocus Hondius' brother-in-law. Van den Keere had a long and distinguished career as an engraver. Indeed, the World map, in the miniature edition may be his last dated engraving.
The maps are simple reductions of the folio maps, but with the side panels omitted. It was not until Bassett and Chiswell re-issued the miniature Prospect and Theatre in 1675-6, that a connection was made on the title-page to Speed: An Epitome of Mr. John Speed's Theatre of the Empire of Great Britain. and of His Prospect of the Most Famous Parts of the World. George Humble published this Atlas in 1627, known as the Speed Miniature . Of the 63 maps in the Atlas, 40 were from the original Van den Keere plates, reworked, 16 were reduced from Speed and 7 were additional. The publication was very popular and there were further reissues up to 1676.

World : Shirley, World 368
