32041 Caernarvonshire, William Hole, 1637. Price: 50.00

CAERNARVO COMITATUS PARS OLIM ORDOVICUM. An early engraved map of the county engraved by William Hole after the survey by Christopher Saxton embellished with a decorative title cartouche. Compass rose. Scale with a pair of dividers. Figures of Neptune and a mermaid embracing. 12 x 11 3/4 inches. Hand coloured. The map was framed many years ago and is offered in this rubbed gilt moulding. The appears very flat and therefore I assume that it has been dry mounted, probably at the time it was framed by R. Jackson & Sons of 18A Slater Street, Liverpool. The firm relocated to this address in 1925 and remained there until the property was bombed in the May Blitz of 1941. Today the family business continues at Number 20.

From Camden's Britannia.

Excellent Book for the County Map Collector

If you can find a copy

When I started collecting and selling maps back in the 1960's there were very few reference books on antique maps. The first book I remember buying was Maps and Mapmakers by R. V. Tooley. Full of wonderful information but over the years there were periods when it was out of print. The Antique Collectors Club used to produce a large range of books on all kinds of antiques and in 1983 BRITISH COUNTY MAPS by YASHA BERISINER was published. To the best of my knowledge there has not been another book like it published. A most useful and informative work and essential for the avid county map collector. I think there was just the one edition. If you can get hold of a copy at a reasonable price my advice would be - Buy it. There is a link below that will search Amazon for copies on sale.

My well used copy pictured on the right still has its distinctive red cover illustrating Cambridgeshire by John Speed. The county I was born in.

I have been buying and selling antique maps since the early 1960's during which time I had a gallery in Watergate Street, Chester for 30 years. I am now able to offer through my websites a personal service to map and print collectors.
