This miniature antique map of Cardiganshire was produced as a playing card map by Robert Morden in 1676. Stencilled suit marks were added to the cards in red and black. At the top and bottom of each of the 52 maps, are panels formed by double lines. In the top panel is the name of the county and a Roman Numersl and the bottom panel shows the Length, Breadth and Circumference of the county. The map has been cropped as are the copies in the British Museum. This set of maps was reproduced and published in "A Brief Description of England and Wales" in 1750. Includes free mounting on request.
