NOTES

General note

The text is mainly taken from: Camden, William. Britannia.

Some of the maps are signed by Jodocus Hondius, and "all were engraved by him or under his direction in his workshop at Amsterdam" (Skelton 7). The exception is the map of England, recut by Abraham Goos and dated 1632.

The title page, which is engraved, is unaltered from the 1627 edition.
