Map of England and Ireland, circa 1564, extending from Arbroath in Scotland to the Franco-Flemish coast
From a geographical commonplace book of William Cecil, Lord Burghley, with his annotations. Burghley was Queen Elizabeth’s chief advisor, twice Secretary of State, and for 26 years Lord High Treasurer. This small atlas was created for Burghley by Lawrence Nowell, an antiquary and Anglo-Saxon scholar, as part of a proposal to undertake a much more accurate survey of the country than had hitherto been attempted.
