The title tablet (top right) flanked by Adam and Eve, with C.R.above the royal arms. Arms of Milo Fitawalter, Henry Bohun, Hump. Stafford Earl of Hereford, Hen. Bollingbrok Duke of Hereford (left side) and Mortimer Earl of Hereford (beside t the scale bar the attribution to Hogenberg as engraver remains unchanged). Although unmistakably the Saxton map of 1577, the map has been extensively revised. Hills appear as steep tumps, especially Hatterrall Hill and the Malvern Hills. Additions include the hundreds (roads based on Ogilby in the later 1693 more usual edition) and Ariconium (at Kenchester) but Archenfield has been omitted. The placename Fowemynd occurs twice, as in 1577, but 'Uris-hay' has incorrectly been added near the northenmost one. A plan of Hereford, based on Speed, replaces the arms of Seckford (bottom right). It gives the names of the city gates and has a key to the principal landmarks, with a note,'The Scotch Army laying Seige to this Citty of HEREFORD in the yeare 1644, occasioned the demolishing of the subburbs therof'. This map was prepared for an edition which was not published (Skelton 80). Eventually it was published in All the Shires of England and Wales described by Christopher Saxton ...by Philip Lea, with the title unchanged but some additional symbols (Skelton 110). Smith 65. Copper engraving with original outline hand colouring. Overall sheet size: 60.3cms x 48.2cms; image size: 500mm x 377mm. Overall browning ; one mark bottom left margin near the centrefol and grey mark right border else good condition.
