Tavernier’s map of the British Isles was first published in 1643, at that time dated 1640, cf. Pastoureau, Tav. II, map 125. At the same date of 1640 Mariette published the map, adding his address to it. Our map is a reissue of the Mariette version. See also Shirley, Tavernier 1, for an edition of 1661. – Good and dark impression, the outline colour well preserved. Full original margins. Trifle creasing. Minor soiling in margins only. An uncommon map in excellent state.
