Copper engraving, 9.2 x 12.3 cm, black and white, stains to upper margin where previously mounted, English text on verso.

Published in Bill’s ‘abridgment of Camden’s Britannia’ and predating Pieter van den Keere’s miniature version of Speed’s atlas, our map of Worcestershire is from the first series of county maps to mark degrees of latitude and longitude. It is thought that fewer than 200 copies were published, and it was never reprinted. King, Miniature Antique Maps, p. 108; Skelton, County Atlases, 16.
