FA1998.69:- 
Map, copper plate engraving, Angliae Regni, Kingdom of England, with Wales, scale about 24 miles to 1 inch, authored by Humphrey Lloyd, Denbigh, Clwyd, drawn and engraved by Abraham Ortelius, Netherlands, 1573.
County boundaries are not shown, but Hampshire can be seen clearly in its setting of southern England.
The colouring is believed to be original; the text on the reverse is in Latin; the error in the numbering of the scale line puts this map as one of the first version; the reference book about Ortelius's maps gives the scale as 1 to 1150000; from the scale line the scale can be estimated as about 1 to 1360000, from measuring positions of half a dozen major towns on the map the scale is better estimated as 1 to 1520000, ranging from say 1 to 1.46 to 1.59 million.
