Description

A small copper, hand colored, engraved scarce map of Connack, (Province of Connaught) Ireland. A series of 44 plates for the British Isles, from about 1599, took a long time to publish. They were based on Christopher Saxton, Ortelius, and Giovanni Battista Boazio, respectively for England and Wales, Scotland and Ireland. They appeared in 1617 in a Latin edition of the Britannia of William Camden, by Willem Blaeu. Later these plates came to William Humble, who issued them (with some modification and expansion) in 1627 as a miniature version of the atlas of John Speed (Pocket Edition). Thereby van den Keere's works came by the name "Miniature Speeds". Chapter III
