View of William of Orange arriving at the English coast at Torbay in his claim for the British crown. John Seller (c. 1630-1697) was an English instrument maker and cartographer and in 1671 he was appointed Hydrographer to the King. Seller instigated the first English maritime atlas, in an effort to compete with the successful Dutch maps at the time. This print was published in "A New Systeme of Geography...", circa 1690. A light crease along the center indicates an original centerfold. Three scattered pinholes. Minor aging to edges.
