Title : The Achievement of Our Soveraigne King James as he Nowe Beareth With the Armes of Severall kings that have aunciently raigned within his nowe Dominions.
Map maker : HONDIUS, J./SPEED, J..
Date : London, 1611.
Size : 15.7 x 10.0 inches. / 40.0 x 25.5 cm.
Colouring : Coloured

Description :This is the frontispiece to John Speed's “The Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine”. The central panel contains the Royal Arms, allegorical motifs including putti, unicorn, crown & lion and a dedication to James I.
Surrounding this are twenty-four smaller shields which clearly depict early English monarchs and historical realms. These include heraldry which denotes the Romans, Normans, Danes, Angevins, as well as various branches of Saxony.

John Speed (1552-1629) is the most famous of all English cartographers primarily as a result of “The Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine”, the first atlas of the British Isles.
The maps from this atlas are the best known and most sought-after of all English county maps. The maps were derived mainly from the earlier prototypes of Christopher Saxton and Robert Morden but with notable improvements including parish "Hundreds" and county boundaries, town plans and embellishments such as the coats of arms of local Earls, Dukes, and the Royal Household. ¤
Condition : In fair condition with English script on verso. One of the smaller shields has been replaced in facsimile. It is the top right cross. Also, the right side has been re-margined.
