Coloured map of Cheshire taken from the Bassett & Chiswell edition of John Speed’s “Theatre of the Empire of Great Britain”. A very well balanced and decorative map, it contains a plan of the city of Chester along with ships, sea monsters and the arms of the noble families of the county. A description of the county appears on the verso in English. There is toning in the generous margins, otherwise a finely coloured example of this very sought after map in very good condition. 38 cm x 50.5 cm
