A NEW AND CORRECT MAP OF SCOTLAND OR NORTH BRITAIN..LIEUTENANT CAMBELL
Stunning large / wall map of Scotland from the endof the Eighteenth century.
The geography is from Marcus Armstrong's map of 1782. Robert Sayer's issue had extensive re-working of all four plates on the basis of information supplied by one Lieutenant Robert Campbell. The N.W. coast is slightly revised and the Western Isles entirely re-drawn except for the North part of Lewis. Some roads are re-drawn and some added. There is a new cartouche and title. This example of what had become a magnificent and fully informative map is from the Laurie & Whittle re-issue. Four sheets joined.
Reinforcement on a couple of folds and a small repaired near invisible tear.
Very good condition.
Attached photo bad as difficult to photograph but map is in good state.
