Several rivers accompanied by illustrations of water nymphs. Woods and hills are marked and decorated accordingly, including Rockingham Forest which is accompanied by an illustration of the wood and a hunting scene. Some light toning to margins, some minor offsetting. Expert reinforcements to centrefold on verso of map, otherwise in good condition. From the first edition, third issue of Drayton's series of county maps. Rare by virtue of the fact that the maps of eastern and northern England, such as this here, only appear in this issue. cf Skelton, County Atlases of the British Isles 1579-1703, No. 13. cf Chubb, The Printed Maps in the Atlases of Great Britain and Ireland 1579-1870, XXXV, pp. 46-7.
