This handsome map of England and Wales was originally created by Jan de Ram and published circa 1689. It provides excellent detail of the counties, roads, cities, towns, churches and universities. An extensive table at left lists the key cities on the map and identifies their longitude and latitude and distance from London. The dramatic title cartouche celebrates the Glorious Revolution of 1688-89. An imposing military figure representing King William III stands over a prone leonine figure representing England, and offers his hand to Queen Mary on the right. Above them putti flank the Stuart-Orange coat of arms.

References: Shirley (BI to 1750) De Ram 1 #3.
