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 is an exceedingly rare, old full colour map of Lancashire created by master mapmaker Joan Blaeu from his workshop in Amsterdam and originally published in this Theatrum Orbis Terrarum Sive Atlas Novus in 1654.

Originally handcoloured almost 400 years ago, this is one of the finest examples of this map that I've ever seen.

This map looks great at all sizes, from 12x16 inches (30x40cm), to 16x20 inches (40x50cm), 18x24 inches (45x60cm) and beyond. I can print it at large sizes all the way up to 50 inches wide (125cm).

Many of the towns, villages and cities in Lancashire are already visible in this map.

Most of Lancashire's most populous towns and cities have already popped into existence by the 1600s - with the notable exception of Blackpool, which was just a hamlet back then. It wouldn't become a major town until the 1800s and the invention of the railway.

The other odd thing to note is that both Manchester and Liverpool (then called Lerpoole) are both on this map as well. Back then they were part of the larger Lancashire Palatine area.

Some of the towns, villages and places clearly visible in this old map of the county of Lancashire include: Blackburn, Preston, Burnley, Lytham St Anne's, Leyland, Chorley, Bury, Rochdale, Oldham, Salford, Ormskirk and many more. 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! Feel free to message me if you want to confirm if a certain Lancashire town or village is on this map.

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.

My 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.
