    Caernarvonshire William Hole 1637

Published in the Reign of Charles II

Caernarvonshire, William Hole, 1637. Price: 50.00

CAERNARVO COMITATUS PARS OLIM ORDOVICUM
An early engraved map of the county engraved by William Hole after the survey by Christopher Saxton embellished with a decorative title cartouche. Compass rose. Scale with a pair of dividers. Figures of Neptune and a mermaid embracing. 12 x 11 3/4 inches. Hand coloured. The map was framed many years ago and is offered in this rubbed gilt moulding. The appears very flat and therefore I assume that it has been dry mounted, probably at the time it was framed by R. Jackson & Sons of 18A Slater Street, Liverpool. The firm relocated to this address in 1925 and remained there until the property was bombed in the May Blitz of 1941. Today the family business continues at Number 20.

Looking at Old Maps by John Booth

This is John Booth's second book that was published in 1979, two years after his book on Welsh Maps. My copy is the first edition in which is a loose sheet giving a guide to prices. The format is very similar with a write up on a cartographer and a full page example illustration opposite. Lots of useful information and a very good introductory book for the collector of county maps. Recommended. Again click on the Amazon link provided and treat yourself to a copy.
