An attractive and interesting plate, published in George Millar's "New Complete and Universal System of Geography" - a Georgian compendium of reports and accounts from all round the world. This is a beautiful and detailed city view set in a decorative engraved frame. From a distant viewpoint two men, one with a horse, survey the Old Town and Canongate burghs of Edinburgh and the Royal Mile, which link Edinburgh Castle to Holyroodhouse Palace. In the distance are the hills of Fife and the River Forth. Negligible water staining at lower margin but a very decorative view.
