Printing Details

This is an attractive hand-coloured map of the county of Northumberland, dating form c1673. The sheet measures 36 × 32cm, with plate mark close to the map edge.

The map was created by Richard Blome (1635–1705) and shows Northumberland with cartouche and three inserts showing the Farne Islands, the Holy Island and heraldic crest of Henry Earle, son of the Duke of Newcastle. The county borders are hand-coloured, as is the coastline and inserts and geographical features such as forests and hills. Hadrian's Wall (here as The Picts Wall) is also coloured.

Condition

This copy is in very good condition for age. There is a small reinforced strip to the back (this was probably where it was folded to be issued with John Ogilby's Britannia). There are two noticeable areas of foxing to the right hand margin, and some light foxing across the map. Very slight crinkling to the right hand edge. The sheet is a little more tan coloured than the photograph suggests but remains in very good order.
