Description:This beautifully hand coloured original antique map of the Welsh county of Brecknock was published in the 1664 Dutch edition of Joan Blaeus Atlas Major.
Blaeus reference for the topographical data is from John Speeds maps from the 1611 Empire of Great Britaine - the beautiful decoration, though, is distinctly Blaeus. This is a beautiful map with a deep impression, original margins, wonderful hand colouring and strong, stable paper. (Ref: Koeman; Tooley; M&B)
