Norden Essex

Norden Essex
John Norden.
[London, 1610.]
Engraving with later colour.  285 x 360mm. Small repairs to the top margin, some minor staining.
Map of Essex engraved by William Kip for Camden's 'Britannia'.
While most maps in the series are copied from Christopher Saxton's maps, this is derived from the county map by John Norden, who tried and failed to complete his own set of county maps. However, those he did complete were regarded as superior to Saxton's and were copied for both the 'Britannia' and Speed's 'Theatre' atlas.
