hover over image to zoom

A fine map of Westmorland from an atlas first published in 1645 by Joan Blaeu, (Dutch 1596-1673).

After 1645 there followed successive editions until the plate was destroyed in 1672, presumably in the great fire at the Blaeu publishing house in that year.

This map shows the hundred boundaries, rivers, woods, parks and settlements together with the relevant coats of arms for the county.

Framed and glazed, overall dimensions: 26 inches x 22 inches

The Blaeu publishing house was established by Willem Blaeu, Joan Blaeu’s father, in 1599, originally as instrument and globe makers.
