Lewis, Harris and Skye, clearly depicted in an attractive and scarce map - here a good fresh example. Jan Jansson's map combined these western islands in a decorative and clear format with the title and mileage scale decorated with cherubs and sea creatures, the sea areas with ships. First published in 1664, the plate remained in use through the century.
