This is from the sixth edition of William Camden’s ‘Britannia’ first published in 1586.

Camden (1551-1623) was an antiquary and historian. An academic by profession he would become the headmaster of Westminster School in 1593. He spent much of his time travelling and collecting material for his highly respected ‘Britannia’. An early printed map of Hampshire from the preferred second fully illustrated edition of William Camden’s classic work with no text on the verso. An example of the second state. Chubb 19; Shirley BL T.Camd 1c; Skelton 6; STC 4508; Taylor ‘Late Tudor and Early Stuart Geography’ pp. 9- 13; Worms & Baynton-Williams (2011).
