DESCRIPTION You are bidding on an exquisite Giclée Printed Reproduction of the John Speed original. The details are faithfully reproduced from an original. This is a beautiful representation of 'A New Mappe of the Roman Empire newly defcribed by Iohn Speed' from a copy of Speed's Prospect of the World from 1676.The Roman Empire This map shows the provinces of the Roman Empire at its height, and their main towns, all with their Latin names. Along the top of the map are illustrations of the more important colonies: Rome, Geneva, Jerusalem, Venice, Constantinople and Alexandria. Running down the sides are depictions of the natives of the Roman Empire: 'A Spainyard, An Italien, A Turke, An Egiptian, A Maroche', whilst a history of the empire is given in a box at the bottom of the chart. This map was in use before the advent of motor cars, railways and canals. 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 and followed it with 'Prospect of the most famous parts of the world' in 1627. His original maps are highly prized and fetch many hundreds of pounds when they come on the market. Here you have the opportunity to own a printed facsimile for a fraction of the price of the original! Measuring c. 21" x 16", this map has been reproduced onto quality 120gsm cream vellum paper.
