THE CARTOGRAPHER

RICHARD BLOME

You could immortalise yourself by paying Richard Blome

so that your coat of arms appeared on one of his maps

Britannia was Richard's Blome major work which included an interesting series of engraved maps of the counties and other parts of the British Isles. It was possible to subscribe to the work and depending upon the size of your financial commitment you could have a dedication to yourself with coat of arms on one o the maps. If you felt like paying rather less you could still immortalise yourself by having your coat of arms appear on one of the many additional pages.

I have been buying and selling antique maps since the early 1960's during which time I had a gallery in Watergate Street, Chester for 30 years. I am now able to offer through my websites a personal service to map and print collectors.
