- More Info
Authentic replica printed on antique parchment, uncoloured, framed, measures 20” wide 16” high, black border. One of the most decorative maps of Wiltshire, Speed's map features an illustration of Stonehenge, one of Britain’s best known and oldest monuments. The map was drawn and updated from the surveys of Norden and Saxton, enhanced with the boundaries of the hundreds, and filled with detail. The composition is completed with an inset plan of Salisbury, the arms of the earls of Wiltshire and Salisbury, a great compass rose, and an interesting cartouche with text attributing Stonehenge to Ambrosianus King of the Brittaines.
