Norden's Hampshire 1595

Title
cartouche

Printed upper left of centre in a strapwork cartouche is:-
HAMSHIRE
Printed lower right in a strapwork cartouche is:-
Johes Norden descripsit - Printed and sold by John Overton at ye white horse without Newgate
There three different hands in the engraving; the first three words are [presumably] original, the next four and ' ye white horse' were [presumably] an amendment by Peter Stent who printed the map in the 1650s-60s, the rest is John Overton's. Similar alterations to engraving can be spotted in other parts of the map.
