Atlas of England by Blaeu
The contents of the atlas is derivided by Blaeu from various editions of John Speedís Theatre of the Empire of Great Britain originally published in 1611. The texts derive largely from William Camdenís Britannia. Blaeu originally published this as Volume IV of the Atlas novus in 1645. Each map epitomised the craftsmanship and artistry of the Blaeu workshop being beautifully ornate with fine cartouches, heraldic shields and calligraphy. Later in 1662 the maps reappeared in volume five of his Atlas Maior, perhaps the finest cartographic work ever produced.
