Engraved by William Hole for the 1622 edition of Poly-Olbion by Michael Drayton. Copper engraving. 9 3/4" x 12 3/4". An untitled map showing the area of Glamorgan, Monmouthshire, Brecknockshire and Somerset.

Poly-Olbion was a book of "song poems" by the poet Michael Drayton celebrating the countryside, illustrated with vibrant, allegorical maps based on river systems.
