MAP OF THE COUNTY OF HEREFORDSHIRE 1695

A fine and rare Copper Engraved original antique Map of Herefordshire with decorative Cartouche. This example is from the very rare Gibson First Edition in 1695, significantly rarer than the 1722 and later editions.

This map comes from ''Camden's Britannia, Newly Translated into English: with large additions and improvements. Translated by Edmund Gibson, 1695.'' This is the first edition of Edmund Gibson's translation, and the first to contain the Morden maps.

This map measures approx 45 x 39cm. A lot of these maps have been later hand-coloured but this one is in its original state.

Very good clean condition. No tearing, staining or damage. Just the light crease down the centre where the map has been folded within the book.

Will be posted rolled and in a strong cardboard posting tube
