Duisburg 1595: a map of England from the French Text edition of Mercator's Atlas III.

A finely engraved map of Elizabethan England filled with names taken from the Saxton map of 1579. Mercator has included much detail including a sailing ship, counties, towns, and natural features such as mountains, rivers, and lakes. Ireland's eastern coast, southern Scotland and north western France are also included.

With a highly decorative strapwork title cartouche. A strong impression with wide margins. A small centerfold tear in the bottom margin does not enter the image and will not affect framing. Very good condition.
