This is a rare full colour map of Wales in 1610, created by John Speed - by far the best and most notable British cartographer of the Stuart era. The map was originally published in 1610 in Speed's The Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine which would remain one of the finest atlases of the British Isles for a couple of centuries.

Most of Wales' most notable towns, villages and cities are already clearly visible in this old map - though some towns and counties had slightly different names back then, like Brecon used to be called Breknok, and Pembrokeshire used to be Penbrokshire.

Cardiff, Newport, Swansea, Denbigh, Carnarvon, Carmarthen, Bangor, Abergavenny, Hay on Wye - they're all here, along with their counties, rivers, villages, mountains and more. This is a wonderfully detailed map of Wales.

Around the edges of the map there are beautiful embellishments, including 16 views of what various Welsh towns looked like back in the 1600s.

This map would certainly make a nice gift for anyone in Wales, or someone who has Wales close to their heart.

You can order the map itself, or you can order a framed version. The frame is a nice, simple black frame that really makes our maps pop out when on a wall. There are also some very large sizes of this map available, which really look spectacular - if you have a big space to present the map, such as a hotel, office, bar, pub, or other big hospitality space that needs decorating.
