Camden’s Britannia, a historical and topographical description of Britain was the very first publication that contained a complete set of individual maps of all the counties of England and Wales. The maps were based on the original work of Christopher Saxton and John Norden and were engraved by William Hole and William Kip. Three editions of the Kip Hole Maps were created in 1607, 1610 and 1637. This map from the 1607 (with Latin text to verso) is considerably rarer than the later editions and most certainly rarer than the John Speed Maps, first published in 1611.
