Baynton-Williams Gallery: Fine Antiquarian Maps and Prints

Keere map of Essex

Keere map of Essex
Pieter van den Keere.
[London, 1676.]
Engraving  85 x 120mm. 
Miniature map of Essex engraved in the 1590s by van den Keere for a Dutch edition of 'Camden's Britannia'. In the 1620s the copper printing plates were bought by Speed's publishers, who reissued them in an atlas 'Speed's Maps Epitomis'd'. This gave these maps the nickname 'Miniature Speeds', despite pre-dating Speed's Theatre.
