Antique chart of the Channel: The Dover Straights
Van Keulen (Johannes).
c1666 - 52 x 62 cm

The New Sea Map of the First Part of the Channell betwext England et France. Engraved map with original hand colouring; an elaborate strapwork cartouche with the map title in Dutch, French, English, Spanish & Italian; a compass rose and numerous rhumb lines. It is unusually oriented to the West. The map in fact covers the Channel from the Pas de Calais almost as far as Bayeux in Western Normandy and on the English side from Dover almost as far as Selsey Bill. On the English coast towns shown from Dover Westward include Hythe, Rye, Hastings, Brighton, Shoreham and Middleton and many more. On the French side the towns marked include Calais, Montreuil, St Valery, Dieppe, Le Havre, the Seine (as far as Rouen), Caen and Port-en-Bessin. This particular chart of the eastern Channel appears to be very uncommon and currently Internet searches have found only one copy for sale at 495! The map is printed on three conjoined sheets of heavy paper and is in a strong and excellent state. The margins are very wide. 515 x 620 mm.

Michael Drayton
1612-22 - 35 x 28 cm

Movntgomery Shyre, Cardygan Shyre & Radnor Shyre from Michael Drayton's fantastical poem, the Polyolbion. The Poly-Olbion is divided into thirty songs, written in alexandrine couplets, consisting in total of almost 15,000 lines of verse. Each song describes between one and three counties, describing their topography, traditions and histories. Copies were illustrated with maps of each county, drawn by William Hole, whereon places were depicted anthropomorphically. (thanks, Wikipedia). 430 x 350 mm overall in the ivory bevelled cut mount. The printer was careless with the freshly pressed sheet resulting in some ink marks, mainly in the lower right portion of the map. See images.
