A good example of this important map of Kintyre and the Island of Gigha, oriented with north to the right. Finely engraved and with charming baroque cartouches to title and mileage scale decorated with fish and putti. The map, based on the work of Timothy Pont, famous surveyor of Scotland in the late sixteenth century, includes great detail of the rivers, villages and castles. Pont's maps were used by the great Amsterdam map publisher Joannes Blaeu who produced the first atlas devoted to Scotland in 1654 with this map appearing in a Spanish text edition of the "Atlas Maior" in 1662. Printed on thick paper with good original colour this is a decorative example with negligible wormholes. .
