I am a 5-star Etsy seller with 1000s of sales and reviews.

Almost all of my maps look amazing at large sizes (2m+) and I can frame them. Contact me to discuss your specific needs. Learn more about how we source maps that you can't buy anywhere else.

This old and wonderful map, in its original black and white monochrome, shows the ancient county of Hertfordshire (or 'Hart ford shire') as it was in 1611. It was created by John Speed and engraved by Jodocus Hondius, and originally published in Speed's "The Theatre of the Empire of Great Britaine".

I can create beautiful, large prints of this map up to 52x70 inches (130x180cm). Please get in touch if you're looking for larger, customised maps or different framing options.

I also have a version of this map that was handcoloured over 400 years ago and is quite beautiful:

Many of the towns, villages and cities in Hertfordshire are already visible in this ancient map, such as Hertford, Watford and St Albans. Curiously, there's a detailed engraving of Verulamium in the top right - an ancient Roman city that was situated under southwest St Albans.

The southern part of Hertfordshire in this map borders London, which means this map also includes some north London towns and villages including: High Barnet, Enfield, Waltham Abbey, Watford, Hatfield and East Barnet.

Some of the other Hertfordshire towns and villages that can also be seen on this map include: Hemel Hempstead, Stevenage, St Albans, Bishop's Stortford, Hitchin, Rickmansworth, Berkhamsted and Potters Bar. But of course, many of them are spelt in their Early Modern English forms.

Take a look at the detailed images and try to spot your hometown!

This would make a wonderful gift for someone from Hertfordshire, who is looking for a map of north London, or who has Hertfordshire in 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. Please get in touch if you'd like a different frame. We use super-clear perspex in our frames - it's less reflective than glass and better for transport.

Our museum-quality maps are made on thick and durable matte paper. Add a wonderful accent to your room and office with these vintage map prints that are sure to brighten any environment.
