The antique map created in 1665 titled ‘Cantivm Vernacule Kent’ is a beautiful depiction of the county of Kent in southern England. The title translates to ‘Kent in the Vernacular’, indicating that it was created to be accessible to a wider audience.

In the early 17th century, the United Kingdom was a nation in transition. It had recently undergone a period of religious and political upheaval, with the English Civil War ending just a few years prior in 1651. The country was still recovering from this tumultuous time, with tensions running high between different factions.

France was a major power in Europe at this time, and its influence can be seen in the map’s depiction of the English Channel and the coast of Kent. The county was an important strategic location for both trade and defence, with major towns such as Maidstone, Chatham and Gillingham located centrally.

Overall, the map offers a fascinating glimpse into the geography and politics of the United Kingdom

Giclée Print Feedback:

Absolutely stellar service! Whilst I was considering my purchase Callum was extremely helpful and friendly, taking the time to actually talk to me rather than keep to business – how refreshing and genuine! I made my purchase quite late in the evening and was surprised to receive notification that it had been dispatched the following day! Lo and behold, I received the print within 48 hours – a remarkably quick turnaround!

Certainly no need to worry about Christmas delivery times! As for the print I bought – perfect… exceptional quality, with fine detail captured without fault. It’s on nice thick paper and packaged with care. I’ll definitely be back for more – I’ve already eyed up my next one!
