Lancastriæ : comitatus palatinus olim pars Brigantum
- Saxton, Christopher, 1542?-
- [London : George Bishop and John Norton, ca. 1620]
- Imprint derived from the atlas in which this state of the map was first issued. From Camden's topographical and historical survey, Britannia, originally published with a set of county maps in the Latin edition of 1607. The principal sources of the maps of the 1607 edition were the maps of Saxton, Norden and Mercator, with the bulk of the engraving undertaken by William Kip (fl. 1598-1635) and William Hole (fl. 1600-1646). The first English edition (translated by Philamon Holland) was printed in 1610 with maps printed from the same plates. Two successive alterations were made to the plates before 1622 (including the addition of plate nos. to all but 14 of the maps), possibly in preparation for the second edition (not actually published until 1637, but entered at Stationers' Hall in 1625). Differs from earlier state by the addition of a plate number, sometime between 1610 and 1622 : numbered 52. Shows county boundaries, rivers, bridges, woods and settlements. Relief shown pictorially. Scale bar graded -12. In upper right, an ornate cartouche (decorated with swags of fruit and putti) enclosing the title. Decoration: compass rose with directional lines; calipers; coasts shaded (outwards); sea detail (stipple).
