The rare ENGLISH TEXT edition. This fine engraved map of Wales by Pieter van den Keere was first issued in the Latin edition of Jodocus Hondius’ edition of Gerard Mercator’s ‘Atlas Sive Cosmographiae’ issued in 1607 as an additional plate. This example is from the English edition of 1636. It is derived from Humphrey Lloyd’s map as published by Abraham Ortelius, the first modern map of Wales. The most notable difference is the addition of a quarter compass rose in the lower left corner. Degrees of longitude and latitude are also added in the borders. This is an example of the second state first introduced here in 1636, the title cartouche is entirely re-engraved. Provenance: Ingol Maps 1987; private collection.
