Attractive full color example of Christopher Saxton's map of Cornwall, from the 1637 edition of Camden's Britannia. Decorated with a strapwork title cartouche and an inset of Launceston, the Royal Arms, galleon, sea-monster, a pair of compasses on the scale 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.
