Britains Tudor Maps reproduces the Beautiful illustrations of John Speed's 1611 collection 'The Theatre of Great Britaine', the earliest published atlas of the British Isles. Each of these richly detailed maps is a work of art in it's own right and every page is completed with a wealth of heraldic decoration and royal portraits.
Every Map is also presented alongside an engaging commentary by Alasdair Hawkyard which elaborates on both the topographical features and the counties prevailing social conditions. This creates an insight into how the physical and social landscape of the British isles has been transformed over time.
