SPEED, John. [An early edition of Speed's famous map of Middlesex]
Midlesex described with the Most Famous Cities of London and Westminster. Described by John Norden... London, George Humble, 1627. Coloured. 390 x 515mm.
An important map of Middlesex by John Speed, derived from the unpublished map by John Norden. engraved by Jodocus Hondius in 1610, the map has inset town plans of London and Westminster (also after Norden's surveys published 1593) and views of St Paul's and Westminster Cathedral. Norden was a contemporary of Saxton and was the first to plan a series of county histories; however he failed to attract sufficient backing for his enterprise and never completed it. His surveying was superior to Saxton's, and Speed preferred to use Norden as a source where possible. SKELTON: 18.
