THE EAST COAST OF SCOTLAND WITH ISLES OF ORKNEY AND SHETLAND
An uncommon sea chart by Greenville Collins depicts the coastal area of Scotland, including Edinburgh, Dundee, Aberdeen, and Inverness. Decorated with an ornate title cartouche incorporating the scale of miles, the map also features a coat-of-arms and ships navigating through a sea criss-crossed with rhumb lines. In 1681 Captain Greenville Collins was commissioned by the Admiralty to survey the sea coast of Great Britain. His charts were the most detailed maps of the period and greatly improved the previous work of John Seller.
Excellent hand colour.
A few minor spots otherwise very good condition.
