A fascinating sixteenth century woodblock map of Britain centred primarily on England and Wales, but including Scotland albeit at a curious angle and the eastern part of Ireland. The major towns and cities are located and the main rivers are featured. A sailing vessel is in the North Sea. With German text on verso containing a medallion of Queen Mary I. Although Shirley cites the first issue of this map as 1578 it has since been found in the 1574 German edition. Provenance: acquired from Doreen Green, 1991; private English collection. Shirley, R.W. (BI to 1650) no. 122 (incorrectly placing its first issue at 1578); Shirley (2004) T.Mun 1l.
