United Kingdom England TBD Ship
This framed hand-colored engraved early antique map of Somerset, England was made by Robert Morden in 1695. First published in a new edition of Camden's "Britannia," in a larger format than the "mini-Mordens" often associated with the mapmaker's name, it shows cities and towns, churches and cathedrals, parks, rivers, bays and topography relevant to the day's commerce and travel; beautiful vivid color with fanciful cartouche featuring sea creatures and plumes of spray. Morden was one of the very first commercially successful mapmakers, and this piece is a perfect example of his celebrated 17th century work. Excellent condition, matted and framed, measures approx. 14.5 x 16.25 inches, with frame 20.5 x 22.75 inches. *****UNAVAILABLE*****
