ANGLIAE, SCOTIAE & HIBERNIAE NOVA DESCRIPTIO
Cartographer: De Jode, Gerard
A large text panel contains descriptive text that originally accompanied the 1546 Lily map. George Lily's map of the British Isles was much copied and was significant as it was the first separately-printed map of the whole of the British Isles and included many more place names and distinct topographical features with a remarkably accurate depiction of Scotland.
This map is not the work of a skilled engraver, unlike some of those in De Jode's later atlas the Speculum Oris Terrarum which were engraved by the brothers Jan and Lucas van Deutecum. It is likely that this map of the British Isles was engraved by De Jode himself.
