'Herefordshire described…'
Speed, J. (c. 1720-43)
51 x 38

Fine map of the county by John Speed. Published by Henry Overton. It is believed that Overton purchased the Speed plates around 1713, and the map shows further changes to the plate by Overton. The main changes are the addition of roads using information from John Ogilby's Britannia and a change in the publication inscription to "solde by Henry Overton at the White Horse without Newgate". Features include town plan of Hereford, depiction of two cartographers at their work, a battle scene and numerous heraldic shields. No text verso. Early colouring. Old tape marks present in the margins but otherwise in good condition.
