John Speed: The Province Ulster described

Map: IRE1476
 
Cartographer: John Speed
Title: The Province Ulster described
Date: 1611
Published: London
Width: 21 inches / 54 cm
Height: 15 inches / 39 cm
Map ref: IRE1476
Description:
County map in the finest 17th Century English hand-colouring we have ever seen. The superbly rich pigments and the extensive gilt highlights are all the more outstanding because of the extreme rarity of Speed maps in contemporary hand-colour. There is restoration and some browning to the fold.
