MAP OF HUNTINGTONSHIRE 1695

A fine and rare Copper Engraved original antique Map of Huntingtonshire 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 staining or marks. Small amount of damage to the right hand margin but this doesn't intrude on the printed area of the map. A the light crease down the centre where the map has been folded within the book and a very soft crease to bottom right corner. And some offsetting as can be seen in the last image provided.

Will be posted rolled and in a strong cardboard posting tube
