A finely engraved and very detailed map of the Isle of Arran decorated with baroque cartouches for the title and a scale, and attractive original colour. The map was drawn by Timothy Pont (c.1564-c.1614), who spent a number of years surveying Scotland in great detail and at his own expense. In June 1654 Joan Blaeu, the renowned Amsterdam map publisher received a 14-year licence for publication of the first atlas devoted to Scotland from Oliver Cromwell. This example, on thick paper is in good condition with two minor wormholes just into the engraved border and only the lightest print offset so often seen in this publication. Pont's map appeared in the first atlas of Scotland, volume V of Blaeu's monumental 'Atlas Novus', and reissued here in the "Atlas Maior".
