England, Stratford-upon-Avon, Shakespeare, Vintage Pictorial Map


Brand: Battlemaps.us

A mid-twentieth-century pictorial map of Stratford-upon-Avon, the birthplace of William Shakespeare. The map contains numerous vignettes with beautifully illustrated scenes from Shakespeare’s plays. The map, designed and drawn by Kerry Lee, is richly adorned with places of interest and events related to the Great Bard’s life. The top left corner contains the coat of arms of Stratford (or, a chevron azure between three leopard’s heads gules), while the top right corner holds the coat of arms of the Shakespeare family — or, a bend sable, a spear of the first, steeled argent (a gold spear tipped with silver, on a black diagonal bar over a gold shield). A vignette with Shakespeare’s portrait and signature is centrally placed at the top of the map, surrounded by quotes from “Romeo and Juliet” and “Hamlet”.
