Aceasta este descrierea orginala a cartii (sau a produsului) trimisa de editura (sau de producator) in limba engleza:
Gorgeous reproductions of Tudor-era maps capture the world of Great Britain during the era. This stunning volume reproduces the maps of John Speed’s 1611 collection The Theatre of Great Britaine in large, easy-to-read format for the first time. Compiled in 1596, these richly detailed maps show each county of Great Britain individually and as they existed at the time, complete with heraldic decoration, illustrations, and royal portraits. Bestselling author Nigel Nicholson provides the introduction, and each map features fascinating social and historical commentary by Alasdair Hawkyard.
