Superbly decorated map of Scotland including the Orkney and Hebrides islands, based on Visscher, per the cartouche. The map is filled with superb detail of towns, cities, markets, universities, and meticulously rendered topography. The map is decorated with title and distance scale cartouches surrounded by mythical figures, putti and the royal coats-of-arms of both Scotland and Britain.
A dark impression with some faint, irregular toning and some minor stains in margins.
