Pieter van den Keere first engraved these plates c.1599 which were eventually published in 1617 by Willem Blaeu in a Latin edition of William Camden’s ‘Britannia’. The plates were next published in England by George Humble under the title of ‘England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland Described’ in 1627. The English issues came to be known as ‘miniature Speed’s’ as Humble also published the folio John Speed atlas, and here utilised the text. Various editions up to 1676 were published. Skelton 17.
