Attractive full color example of Christopher Saxton's map of Monmouthshire, from the 1637 edition of Camden's Britannia. The map includes 2 decorative cartouches and elaborate coat of arms, sailing ship and a compass rose. William Camden first issued his Britannia in 1586, but did not include maps until the 1607 edition. The maps in the 1637 edition are essentially unchanged from the 1607 edition. A bit of dampstaining in the margin, far from the printed image.
