Seller: old-maps (4.394) 100%, Location: LEICESTER, Ships to: GB & many other countries, Item: 251812237071 YORKSHIRE This is a hand coloured, reproduction John Speed map of YORKSHIRE, c.1610. We also have maps of the N & E Ridings and The West Riding of Yorkshire in my eBay Shop - Why not take a look? Click here: The rivers, such as the Humber and Ouse, woodland such as Knaresborough and Pickering forests, and the moors and dales of all three ridings are marked; along with their towns and cities such as York, Leeds, Sheffield and Whitby. In the top right hand corner is to be found the Royal coat of arms, whilst at the bottom is a scale of miles. This map was in use before the advent of motor cars, railways, canals, and even before the English Civil War and the loss of Charles' head! John Speed was the most famous of all English map-makers. He published an atlas of the counties of Britain, entitled "The Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine", in 1611. His original maps are highly prized and fetch hundreds and often thousands of pounds when they rarely come on the market. This map has been 'dry-mounted' onto good quality display board, ready for framing and will be dispatched 'flat' between two boards for safe transit, but does make quite a heavy package! Postage and Packing is FREE within the UK.Please note we cannot send these drymounted maps overseas anymore due to the very high cost involved. But we have a paper version which can be sent rolled in a mailing tube. Please have a look in my ebay shop for these. These maps are also available ready framed in my eBay shop Measuring c. 21" x 16" overall, this map has been reproduced onto quality cream vellum 120 gsm paper, and painstakingly hand coloured, with no other mechanical colouring involved. Every bit of colour on this map has been applied by hand with sable brushes using traditional watercolours and inks. THERE IS NO PRINTED COLOUR ON THIS MAP WHATSOEVER! In the past if you wanted a John Speed Map, you either had to pay hundreds of pounds for a genuine one, that is if you could find one. Or else you had to settle for cheap colour printed or black and white copies costing a few pounds. These printed copies quite often are treated to resemble 'parchment', although I am not sure why, because original John Speed maps are never ever printed on parchment! Well now there is another choice! Our facsimile maps are individually hand coloured, making each one unique and very desirable. As each map is an individual work of art in it's own right, each is unique and may differ slightly from the pictures shown below. Although not totally accurate from a cartography point of view, this map displays a charm and naivete that cannot be found in today's hi-tech world of DVD players and mobile phones!
