Wales, Joan Bleau (1645)In 1645, Joan Blaeu (1598-1673) successfully published an atlas of England. Blaeu based this atlas on the `Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine' published by his English colleague John Speed (1552-1629) in 1611. To this atlas belonged a basic map of the principality Wales. The map has been beautifully decorated on the right side with coats of arms. Joan Blaeu has dedicated the map to king Charles I.
