The complete works of Britain's most famous map maker, John Speed
The first detailed maps to show the provinces of Ireland
The first set of county maps
The first comprehensive set of English town plans
- The first English attempt at producing an atlas on a grand scale. Includes 68 maps altogether.
- The first detailed maps to show the provinces of Ireland
- The first set of county maps consistently attempting to show the boundaries of territorial divisions
- The first truly comprehensive set of English town plans. Perhaps as many as fifty of the seventy-three towns had not previously been mapped, and about fifty-one of the plans were probably Speed's own work. It’s believed that Speed might have been helped by his son, John, in surveying towns.
- A balance is struck between the modern and historical, with information placed on the edges of the maps about antiquarian remains, and sites and vignettes of famous battles, together with arms of princes and nobles.
