This is an anonymous and untitled map of the British Isles dating from c1600. There is no record of its publication. It is mounted in a French atlas factice and the language of the map is French. On stylistic grounds it is possible to suggest a date of around 1600, however, it could have been produced later as a historical exercise. The map shows England Wales and Scotland and in its outline is mostly accurate, including an attempt to represent the coastal feature of the Bay of Cardigan.
