Coloured map of Cambridgeshire from an atlas published by Henry Overton entitled “England Fully Described in a Compleat Sett of Mapps of ye County’s of England and Wales…” comprised principally of John Speed’s maps. Considered to be one of the most sought after of Speed’s county maps, it is surely the most decorative map of Cambridgeshire. The map contains a plan of Cambridge with a key to 26 important locations in the town, two vignettes of scholars, coats of arms of the colleges of Cambridge University and local nobles. Also included is the royal coat of arms surrounded by a lion and unicorn astride the decorative strap-work title cartouche.. In addition to changing the publisher’s imprint, Overton re-engraved Speed’s plates to include the county’s main coaching roads. Blank verso. The map, which has a few pinholes and printers’ creases, some minor repairs and tight margins, is a finely coloured, presentable example that will display beautifully when framed. 38 cm x 51.5 cm
