Description :‘Cardigan comitatus pars olim dimetarum’. From the 1610 edition of Camden's Britannia. This edition is the second state.
The title is in an elaborate cartouche top left with compass rose beneath it, scale of distance bottom right . Watermarked paper. This series of maps were the first in which each county was deliniated on a separate sheet.
They were prepared by William Kip and William Hole and were mainly based on those of Christopher Saxton and Norden. The first issue of these maps was in 1607 with Latin text on the back of the maps and as the paper on which they are printed is rather thin, the lettering sometimes shows through on to the front of the map. In the subsequent two editions of 1610 and 1637 the maps had no text on the back and plate numbers were added to many maps for the 1637 edition.
Copper engraving with later hand colouring.
Condition : Generally good condition with no holes or tears wide margins not always found with these maps , The printed area measures 265 x 332 mm the sheet size being 320 x 400 mm, the map has slight foxing.
