Cambridge, England, was a thriving university town in 1574 when this street map was published. The map points out colleges, chapels, lodgings, and features of particular interest to students and visitors. It appears within the two-volume set of books titled De antiquitate Cantebrigiensis Academiæ, a peculiar tome endeavoring to answer the question of which was older, the University of Cambridge or the University of Oxford.
