Coloured state 2 map of Surrey from the 1610 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, which clearly displays the city of London and Hampton Court Palace, includes a key that identifies the meaning of symbols used to differentiate places shown on the map. Blank verso. Other than the addition of side margins to facilitate framing, a finely coloured, dark impression in excellent condition. 28.5 cm x 37.5 cm
