Description

First edition of this rare large format map of Scotland, published in London by Henry Overton.

Rare map of Scotland, engraved by Sutton Nicholls, with a large inset of Edinburgh Castle. The first edition of the map pre-dates the inclusion of the large inset of the Sterling Castle, which was added circa 1745.

The map is very rare on the market. AMPR lists only a single copy offered by Jonathan Potter (1745 edition), with no examples of the first edition appearing in AMPR.
