By John Speed.

Speed's very elaborate map of 1610 of the County of Cambridge is bordered by coats of arms of the various Cambridge Colleges and of Earls of Cambridge. There is a ground plan of Cambridge Town with a key to sites.

As well as very decorative title panels the map has illustrations of four academics. The county appears sparsely inhabited in the North around the Isle of Ely. This was due to the constant flooding in that area.
