One of the nation’s great cartographic treasures, the Queen Mary Atlas was a gift from Mary to her husband Philip II of Spain in 1558.
Created in 1555, as a gift from Queen Mary to her husband Philip II of Spain, this collection of maps and charts comprises the Queen Mary Atlas, one of the greatest cartographic treasures of the British Library. With aggressively English and Spanish content, it reflects the self-image of both, and specifically their war aims against France in 1556-9. This page shows Diogo Homen’s World Map.
