Description

A very fine example of Richard Blome's scarce map, the earliest folio sized map of the region to be engraved in England.
From his "Geographical Description Of The Four Parts Of The World." With in upper right corner an elaborate heraldic cartouche and a dedication to Robert Viner off London, Alderman Knight & Baronet.
Several sailing ships and sea monsters.

Blome first began engraving maps for his Geographical Description in 1667. The completed volume was in small folio, and contained 24 maps (plus one duplicated), engraved by Francis Lamb, Thomas Burnford and Wenceslas Hollar. ¤
