I am a 5-star Etsy seller with hundreds 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, full colour and exceedingly rare map shows the ancient county of Lincolnshire 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".

The natural size for this map is 18x24 inches (45x60cm) but it looks even better when printed large. I can create beautiful, large prints of this map up to 37x50 inches (100x125cm). Please get in touch if you're looking for larger, customised or different framing options.

Many of the towns, villages and cities in East Midlands county of Lancashire are already visible in this map. In the bottom left corner is a detailed engraving of Lincoln, then (and still) the capital of this ancient county.

Most of Lancashire's most populous towns and cities have already popped into existence by the 1600s - with the notable exception of Scunthorpe, which didn't exist until the 1850s. You can see the villages that would be absorbed and become Scunthorpe though: Frodingham, Crosby and Bottesford.

Some of the towns, villages and places clearly visible in this old map of the county of Lincolnshire include: Lincoln, Grimsby, Grantham, Boston, Cleethorpes, Immingham, Spalding, Skegness, Gainsborough, Stamford, Sleaford 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 Lincolnshire town or village is on this map.

On the left side of the map are the coats of arms of the Earls of Lincoln, and also an interesting engraving that details the Battle of Lincoln in 1141 between King Stephen of England and the forces loyal to Empress Matilda.

This would make a wonderful birthday or Christmas gift for someone from Lincolnshire or Lincoln or who has Lincolnshire 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.
