click here to view a large version in a separate window

A very decorative map showing the Scilly Isles, the Channel Isles, the Isle of Wight and the Isle of Man. A. E. Taylor's series first appeared in 1932 as promotional posters for Pratt's Motor Oil Company and were re-issued after their takeover by Esso at slightly reduced scale in 1936 in "Pictorial Britain and Ireland ...." Each map is covered with vignettes and small panels of text illustrating towns and landmarks along the roads. Embellished with literary quotations from Shakespeare, Lamb and others. The perfect map for island lovers, the sheet has two maps, the upper group being Scottish Isles .... A similarly decorative map showing the Outer Hebrides and Isle of Skye, the Shetland and Orkney Isles and the Inner Hebrides and Isle of Arran. This map is embellished with quotations from the works of Scottish authors, including Robert Louis Stevenson and Sir Walter Scott.
