SOLD Angliae Regni flo: rentissimi nova descriptio, auctore Humfredo Lhuyd den bygiense 1573


Code: 76398

From the Theatrum Orbis Terrarum - French Text - this is Humphrey Lloyd's depiction of England and Wales published in the first Additamentum to the Ortelius atlas.

The map presents an interesting picture of the southern Welsh coast and the Devon and Cornwall peninsula. This is curious as Lloyd himself was a Welshman, and a noted cartographer, and this depiction was certainly obsolete at the time of publication.

Excellent condition with very bright original colours.

Van den Broecke #19.
