Handsome example of this fine county map of Cambridgeshire. It is fully engraved to show all the salient features of the county including market towns, forests, parks, hills and bridges. A strapwork title cartouche and distance scale with dividers adorn the map. Published in the 1607 edition of Camden's Britannia, without a compass rose or plate number on the map.

A nice impression on watermarked paper with light dampstains almost entirely in the top blank margin.
