Warburton), Rushworth?s Historical Collections narrates a turbulent episode of 17th century English history, when the English Civil War was breaking out. Throughout his narrative, Rushworth shows a partiality towards the side of Parliament. His narrative also issues a warning of the potential chaos and destruction that developments in the British Isles might lead to. The important folding map is untitled and attributed to Wenceslas Hollar (Baynton-Williams, ?New Worlds,? 83), juxtaposing a map of the British Isles with a view of the Battle of Prague ? effectively comparing the Thirty Years? War that was devastating Central Europe with the Civil War that was engulfing England, warning the English of the consequences of civil disorder. The map in very good condition published on laid paper with a handsome watermark. John Rushworth (1612-1690) was an English lawyer, historian and politician who sat on the House of Commons at various times between 1657 and 1685.
