BRITANNIA, Joan Bleau (1645)This is the only map of Great-Britain published by Joan Blaeu (1598-1673). The source of this map is a map by John Speed (1552-1629) from 1611. Nevertheless, the importance of this copy is often greater than the original. The vignets on both sides of the map contain 14 miniatures in the style of the most important painters of the time: they portray 14 Saxonian sovereigns and their conversion to christianity. The map was published in several atlases by Blaeu.
