A New Map Of Scotland With The Roads ... : R. Greene / W. Berry

click here to view a large version in a separate window

An attractive example of a sought-after separately published broadsheet map - the first of Scotland to mark major roads. According to Moir in "The Early Maps Of Scotland", Timothy Pont's map of Lothian, which appeared in Blaeu's "Atlas" of 1654, was the first to represent roads in Scotland. However, Green and Berry's map, engraved by Francis Lamb, is the earliest of Scotland as a whole to show roads. This is the first edition of the map with both Green and Berry's names, a re-issue with Greene's name alone appeared before 1689. Roads were becoming an increasingly topical issue at this time with more and more coaches appearing and with the introduction of "statute labour", an Act introduced by the Scottish Parliament in 1669, whereby money and labour were to be contributed by parishioners for the upkeep of roads in their Parish. Some staining and restoration to left border, with no loss of detail but an acceptable example of a rare and important map.
