A fine example of this rare and important chart of eastern Scotland covering the coastline from Cromarty and Inverness down to south of Edinburgh and Dunbar. Finely engraved by the Italian Arnoldo Lucini, the chart appeared in volume 2 of Sir Robert Dudley's "Dell'Arcano del mare" - the first English sea atlas to cover the world and the first sea atlas designed on Mercator's projection. Dudley had been exiled to Florence with the first edition being published in 1646-47 and the second in 1661. The charts are renowned for their distinctive and unique engraving with elegant lettering, scrolls, vignettes and flourishes.
