An important map of Nottinghamshire, engraved by Jodocus Hondius in 1610 for John Speed's county atlas, 'The Theatre of the Empire of Great Britain', first published 1611-12. It is one of the most decorative maps of the county, with an inset plan of Nottingham, the arms of the monarch and local nobility, ornate cartouches for the title and scale and a vignette battle scene. An English text on the reverse gives a history of the county and an extensive list of towns and villages.
