BRITANNIAE INSULAE QUAE ANLIAE ET SCOTIAE REGNA CONTINET CUM HIBERNIA ADIACENTE
Cartographer: Lily, George
This woodcut of the British Isles was published in Venice in 1556 is based on Lily’s map. This is the only copy of this map known to exist. It differs from the original in that it is orientated with north to the top, whereas the original is orientated with the west to the top. Lily’s map was significant as it was the first separately-printed map of the whole of the British Isles. It includes many more place names and distinct topographical features and Scotland is depicted remarkably accurately.
