This attractive and uncommon map was first issued in Amsterdam in Jodocus Hondius' "Atlas Minor" series - a reduced format collation of Gerard Mercator's atlas maps of a few years earlier. The map with its scale shown as c. 50 miliaria Scotica to the inch, is well detailed and set, in this edition in a page of English text from one of the rare issues of "Historia Mundi". This map of Scotland including the Scottish islands is beautifully coloured, with careful colouring of borders and especially of the Mannerist cartouches, sea monster and galleon.
