This is a scarce map of England and Wales that shows the seven historic kingdoms of the Anglo-Saxon period. The map is densely engraved with information with a key at bottom identifying the various symbols used for place names. The title cartouche is surmounted by the British Royal Arms, dating from the reign of William and Mary.
