Scotland ... : R. Morden

click here to view a large version in a separate window

A decorative and detailed map of all Scotland published in William Camden's renowned "Britannia" - one of the longest lasting descriptions of the country ever published containing maps of each county, Wales, Scotland and Ireland. The book was published with maps from 1607 into the early nineteenth century. Camden's text, almost one hundred years after its first Latin edition, was revised by Dr Edmund Gibson of Oxford University in 1695 and was illustrated with newly commissioned maps by Robert Morden, the well-regarded London map maker. The consequence was a series of maps described by the editor, Gibson, in glowing terms ... "Upon the whole, we need not scruple to affirm, that they are by much the fairest and most correct of any that have yet appear'd". The maps were clearly and elegantly engraved and, despite decoration limited to the simple rococo - like title cartouches, attractively presented. The work's popularity is shown in the several editions published over many years and in the charm of these seventeenth century maps. Although the county maps remained unchanged throughout all Gibson's editions, the Scotland map appeared only in the first edition and is frequently found with damaged edges as it was a large map requiring folding into the volume - it was replaced by a two sheet map as more often found. This outstanding example has a negligible paper crease, large blank margins and superb and attractive original colour.
