Coloured novelty map of Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Berkshire taken from Michael Drayton’s poetic travelogue “Poly-Olbion” first published in 1612. These charming maps, which were engraved by William Hole, are very distinctive as they show very few cities or towns but instead highlight geographic features such as rivers, hills and forests. His maps are decorated with allegorical images of Goddesses, water nymphs and hunters. This example shows the city of Oxford, the Chilterns, Windsor Forest and several rivers including the Thames. Blank verso. A finely coloured example in excellent condition. 25 cm x 33 cm
