A good impression of this attractive and important map - one of the earliest of the country alone, the best to date of Scotland and one of the first to depict it on its accepted north-south axis. The outlines and detail, adapted from Mercator's great map of the British Isles, were a considerable improvement on that by Ortelius - the only other folio map of the period. The title is enclosed in a bold and imposing strapwork cartouche. This particular example is from a Latin text edition and has fine, strong original colour. A little centrefold discolouration apparent in blank margins but a very nice example. Latin text, 57, X
