ENGLAND

BRITANNIA
The masterpiece from Blaeu´s manufactory.Thic coloured copperengraving of Great Britain presents the top in the world
and holand cartography in the middle of 17.century.Bleau inspired himself by figural map of an english cartograf John Speed,published 1611.He decorated the edges and both sides of this map with interesting events of the british history.
For example -the upper picture in the right column we see king Ethelbert of Kent welcoming Augustin,the head of
pope Gregory´s mission in 595 and christianization of the english inhabitants.
Other parts of this map are interesting aswell.For example - in the middle south part of Scotland there is an uncoloured
coat of arms,described "The Pict´s".Once the Pict´s kingdom had the whole Scotland,but when the country was
absorbed by Scots,Picts left no historical memories.Therefore the blazon of Pict´s kingdom is empty.This beatiful map
appeared for the first time in Theatrum Orbis Terrarum sive Atlas Novus in 1645.The last edition was in 1667.
Almost the same map published Jan Janssonius between 1646-1680.
