Lot 4322

This lot features the following piece of artwork:

Artist: John Speede
Medium: Engraving
Year: 1610
Dimensions: Unframed, measures 21 1/4" by 17 1/4

Details/Condition: This piece features an original antique engraved map of Caermarden, "Both Shyre and Towne described". Carmarthen is now known as Carmarthen, lying in the southern part of Wales. Carmarthen lays claim to being the oldest town in Wales, with the two settlements of Old and New Carmarthen were only united into a single borough in 1546. Carmarthen was the most populous borough in Wales between the 16th and 18th centuries and was described by William Camden as "the chief citie of the country". This map was excised from John Speede's atlas, Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine, published in 1610/11. The atlas contained the first set of individual county maps of England and Wales, with maps of Ireland and a general map of Scotland. On the verso of this map are pages of text from the atlas, including pages 103 and 104 of Book Two, Chapter Four, describing Caermarden-Shire.

This hand-colored map was engraved on laid paper, with chain and laid lines visible when held to the light. The map contains an inset of the town of Caermarden, with streets identified. Labeled on the map are various counties and towns, including Kidwellye, Breknokshire, Cathinok, Cayo, Perve, and Elluet, among many others. The map is embellished with a decorative title, a scale of miles and fine lettering and hand-colored ornamentation throughout.

John Speede (1552–1629) was a historian and cartographer, whose maps of English counties are often found framed in homes throughout the United Kingdom. He was born at Farndon, Cheshire, and went into his father's tailoring business where he worked until he was about 50. While working in London, his knowledge of history led him into learned circles and he joined the Society of Antiquaries where his interests came to the attention of Sir Fulke Greville, who subsequently made Speede an allowance to enable him to devote his whole attention to research. As a reward for his earlier efforts, Queen Elizabeth granted him the use of a room in the Custom House. It was with the encouragement of William Camden that he began his Historie of Great Britaine, which was published in 1611. Although Speede probably had access to historical sources that are now lost to us he certainly used the work of Saxton and Norden, his work as a historian is considered mediocre and secondary in importance to his map-making, of which his most important contribution is probably his town plans, many of which provide the first visual record of the British towns they depict.

Following the Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine atlas, Speede published in 1611 The genealogies recorded in the Sacred Scriptures according to euery family and tribe with the line of Our Sauior Iesus Christ obserued from Adam to the Blessed Virgin Mary, a biblical genealogy, reprinted several times during the 17th century. Just before his death in 1627, Speede published A Prospect of the Most Famous Parts of the World which was the first world atlas produced by an Englishman. (biography courtesy of Wikipedia)

The work shows moderate external age/wear, with age-toned paper, with some moisture indications and foxing. The paper has some tearing and chipping along the edges. The lettering and color of the map shows beautifully and is clean.
