Exquisite county map of Northhamtonshire with Blaeu's typical fine engraving and composition, and clear topographical information as well as profuse decorative elements. The top of the map is filled with the royal coat of arms and heraldic shields of various local noblemen, and at bottom is a delightfully illustrated title cartouche and scale featuring to putti.
A bit of color offsetting, else fine.
