An attractive map of the whole of Wales first published in Nicolas Sanson’s ‘Les Cartes Generales de Toutes les Parties du Monde’ in 1658. Sanson was France’s premier cartographer and helped to lift the field onto another level during his career. With an attractive title cartouche lower left in a nice dark impression. The cartography is derived from that of John Speed and includes the neighbouring English counties including Herefordshire, Shropshire, Worcestershire, Cheshire, parts of Gloucestershire and Staffordshire. To the west the proximity of the Irish coast is depicted. Provenance: Doreen Green 1996; private collection.
