This interesting sheet contains a map of western Europe (10.5 x 10.7") surrounded by detailed information about England. The title indicates that the map relays the history of England and its conquests within Europe. The map includes: two family trees of the English monarchy; three tables outlining the major states and cities of Europe, as well as those states that were conquered by England; and historical notes. The map also features a compass rose and an inset showing the whole of Europe and the Mediterranean identifying the route of Richard the Lionheart on his Crusade to the Holy Land.
