SPEED, John.

Origin: London, (William Humble), 1610-46.

Engraved by Jodocus Hondius. With inset plan of Bedford. The imprint remains unchanged from an earlier edition and reads George Humble as publisher, although this example has no text on the verso and was probably published by William Humble in 1646. The lack of text is normally associated with editions published during the English Civil Wars to be carried in a saddle-bag, rolled and bound at the side, although this example has signs of a centrefold. An uncommon edition.

SPEED, John.

Origin: London, John Sudbury & George Humble, 1610-16, Latin text edition.

From Speed's atlas 'The Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine', the Latin edition is arguably the rarest of all editions, being produced for the overseas market. Thomas Chubb states in his book, "The Latin edition of Speed's atlas of great Britain and Ireland is extremely rare, it was not until 1918 that the British Museum obtained a copy." It is even more difficult to find examples in original colour.

Condition: Fine original colour; some oxidisation of the original colour, particularly the green, this has caused some discolouration and minor cracking in some areas, this has been expertly repaired. Some small holes visible when held up to the light, short centrefold split (repaired), other minor discolouration and soiling, otherwise a good example.

Essex, devided into Hundreds, with the most antient and fayre Towne Colchester Described…

image

SPEED, John.

Origin: London, John Sudbury & George Humble, 1610-23-.

Engraved by Jodocus Hondius and published in a composite copy of Speed's atlas without a titlepage. The provenance is speculative, although there is no text on the verso the plate is unchanged from the first edition. The colour is very attractive and reminiscent of maps seen in the Hondius atlases of the early 17th century. As to why the maps were trimmed to the printed area and laid on thick paper is another mystery although it could have been done to form an atlas for a special commission. The former head of the British Library Map Department, R.A.Skelton, in referring to the 1623 edition of the 'Theatre', of which only three copies extant, mentions the large number of loose sheets without text that were published at this time and could be the source of this example.

Condition: Finely coloured, possibly contemporary with publication; dark impression, trimmed to the edge of the printed surface with no apparent loss and laid down on thick paper in the period. No text on verso, small nicks to the edges of the map, hardly noticable, light surface soiling, overall a good example with superb early colour.
