map 10.5 x 6.3 cm, in two versions. From the first, 1658, edition
of the Swiss genealogist and map author's "Praecipuarum

uninformative
(no Vilnius, Trakai, Kaunas, etc. in it) and as an
imprecise copy of A. Ortelius’or J. Jansonius’ maps.  Created to
illustrate the expansion of Protestantism in Lithuania. Published
six times between 1650 and 1678.

1669 [dated] Sanson (original cartographer) - Richard Blome (publisher): "A Mapp of the
Estates of the Crowne of Poland, where are the Kingdom of Poland with its Palatinates the
Dutches of Russia Noire Cujavia Mozovia Prussia Lithuania Volhynia Podolia &c...1669,"
London, 15.5 x 10.5 inches. The earliest folio-sized map of the region engraved in England.
While Speed's atlas was published earlier, his plates were engraved and printed in Amster-
dam. To finance his work, Blome undertook subscribers, in exchange for a promise to add
their coat of arms to certain maps. In later editions, if the renewal fee was not paid, Blome
added a different subscriber's coat of arms, leading to multiple images on various editions of
the same map. This map's dedication: “To the Right Worshipful Sr. Richard Otley of
Pichford, in Shropsheir Knight." See the 1680 version.
