Christopher Saxton's Map of Yorkshire, close up of a corner decoration (Unknown)
Colour imageUndated. Image shows a corner decoration embellishing Christopher Saxton's map of Yorkshire which he made in 1577. The map shows part of the Yorkshire Coastline and North York Moors. Christopher Saxton was brought up at Dunningley in West Ardsley. He was educated at Cambridge University and then served as an apprentice map-maker to John Rudd, the vicar of Dewsbury, around 1570. Saxton is famous for making the first national atlas and his great achievement was noted by Queen Elizabeth I. She gave him the rights to publish his maps in his own name in 1577 to avoid plagiarism. Indeed, the Royal Coat-of-Arms of Elizabeth I is visible in the image along with other embellishments including fish, birds and ships. Christopher Saxton has since been described as ‘the father of English cartography’.
