Rare English Waghenaer Map of Southwestern Swedish Coastline

The chart is richly embellished with compass roses, sea monsters, sailing ships, and rhumb lines.

Shirley says of the English Waghenaer:

In 1588 Anthony Ashley, clerk to the Privy Council, was commissioned by Sir Christopher Hatton to prepare and English language version of... Waghenaer's... Spieghel der Zeevaerdt... For the English version new plates were engraved in England by Theodore de Bry, Jodocus Hondius, Augustine Ryther and Johannes Rutlinger .

The last copy of the English Waghenaer to be publicly sold was Lord Wardington's, which made 90,000 GBP plus premium at Sotheby's in 2006.

Cf. Koeman, Wag 13.
