This handsome map of the British Isles in the distinctive style of Homann contains highly detailed depictions of Ireland, England, Scotland, Wales, and the island groups of Orkney and the Outer Hebrides. In addition, the map frames Britain with the adjacent parts of Holland and Belgium with five distance scales below. The upper right inset chart details the Shetland Islands. The key at lower left includes symbols for cities, towns, villages, universities, forts and redoubts. The large, ornate title cartouche is decorated with a sea monster, shells, a coat of arms and armaments. Last but not least, the map is titled in English along the top of the map.
