Scotia Regnum : G. Blaeu

click here to view a large version in a separate window

An attractive copy of Blaeu's first map of the Kingdom, based on Mercator's of 1595. In the tradition of Amsterdam map-making, this map of Scotland was itself copied by Jansson for issue in his atlas of 1646, however Blaeu replaced this with more up-to-date maps from 1654 supplied by Timothy Pont for the Scottish volume of the Atlas series. There is an inset map of the Orkneys at top right and the title, adorned with coats of arms, unicorns, thistles and so on. Although first published in 1634, this example, lacking text on the reverse was probably issued around 1660.
