A Superb Map for Collectors.

The map of "The Kingdom of England" was based on a plate from Christopher Saxton's Atlas of 1579. Speede made a number important improvements on Saxton's work introducing new natural features such as lakes, woods, rivers and towns together with detailed county boundaries. The borders of the map show a series of costumed figures from village people to gentry.
