Description:

ANGLIA REGNVM, J. Jansson, Amsterdam.

It is considered likely that when preparing this map, Jansson copied directlv from the Blaeu map of England and Wales of 1634, rather than from the Speed of 1611, which Blaeu had utilized. It can be distinguished at a glance from the Blaeu map as the national crests of Scotland and Ireland are included and there are, in addition, many other less significant changes of detail. All in all a gorgeous example, with carefully and judiciously applied original color.
