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 East Anglian county of Norfolk 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".

This map looks great at all sizes: 12x16 inches (30x40cm), 16x20 inches (40x50cm), 18x24 inches (45x60cm) and 24x36 (60x90cm) 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.

In the top right corner of the map is a detailed engraving of Norwich, then (and still) the capital of this ancient county. Even by the 1600s Norwich was fairly well developed - you might even recognise some of the streets from central Norway today!

Most of Norfolk's most populous towns and cities have already popped into existence by the 1600s. Here are some of the places clearly visible in this old map of the county of Norfolk: Norwich, King's Lynn, Gorleston-on-Sea, Great Yarmouth, Thetford, Dereham, Taverham, Wymondham, North Walsham, Downham Market, Attleborough, Diss, Caister, Hunstanton, Sheringham, Cromer, Fakenham 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 Norfolk town or village is on this map.

This would make a wonderful birthday or Christmas gift for someone from Norfolk or who has Norwich 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.
