Bapt. Homann, Norimberg, cum privilegio, S.C.M."A wonderfully decorative map of Great Britain, sporting not only a detailed map of the UK, the placenames fairly crammed in, but also a splendid cartouche, with amongst other details a portrait of King George the 1st. When the map first appeared in 1712, that space was filled with a portrait of Queen Anne. Her death in 1714 meant the cartouche had to be re-engraved with a portrait of her successor. No date for this example - I believe they were issued up to at least 1740, and this map certainly bears all the errors of such maps up to that time. To the North of Scotland, for example, the northerly point of Lewes does not taper to a point, and the Westerly point of the mainland ends at faro Head rather than Cape Wrath, which is missing. This latter error was corrected in the 1740s. So a wonderfully decorative map that would frame very well. Size: the sheet measures 61cms x 53cms.Condition: A very good example. A little wear and darkening along the centrefold, with extra support at the back lower half. Pencil on the back. Map clean with lovely original handcolouring. Postage: free within the UK. £8.00 to Europe, £12.00 to USA etc. I have other antique maps, books, prints etc. in my ebay shop - please see my other items. Condition: A very good example.
