Map of the travels and voyages of the apostles. Relief shown pictorially Includes scenes of apostles at bottom of sheet, 1680. Richard Blome (1635-1705) was an English engraver, cartographer, and publisher. Blome produced a great number of maps, but none were original, and he was often accused of plagiarism although usually made no attempt to hide his sources. His maps were attractive and quaintly designed, and they still retain their nostalgic look. His series of county maps were combined in the Britannia and was published in 1673 but was not a success. Most of his work was engraved by Wenceslaus Hollar, Richard Palmer, and Francis Lamb, and embellished with dedications to county dignitaries which were added or omitted in later editions.
