SPEED, John

Wight Island

London, 1612-[c.1715]
380 x 510 mm., in fine early outline colour with NO TEXT TO THE VERSO. With some very light foxing to the side margins only, otherwise in good condition.
This state is from the last and most complete edition published by Bassett and Chiswell. Despite the map being in the same state found in the 1676 edition the verso is without text. However, there is on the back ‘Wight Island’ written in a hand reminiscent of George Willdey leading us to conclude that this example comes from his shop. An unusual item. Shirley (2004) T.Spe 1k; Skelton (1970) 92.
