Coloured state 3 map of Hampshire from either the 1610 or 1637 English edition of Camden’s Britannia. Initially issued in 1607 with further editions in 1610 and 1637, Britannia was the first publication that contained a complete set of individual county maps of England and Wales. The county maps in Britannia were based on the work of Christopher Saxton and John Norden and were engraved by William Hole and William Kip. This decorative map of the county includes two keys; one that identifies the meaning of symbols used to differentiate towns and a second that defines the numbers associated with the division of hundreds in the county. Blank verso. Excellent condition. 29.5 cm x 31.5 cm
