Description

Rare Decorative Plan and View of Edinburgh Dedicated to George Lockhart esq.

Rare town plan, bird's-eye view and prospect of Edinburgh, engraved by the Scots mapmaker Andrew Johnston, and first published in 1714.

The map first appeared in the Nouveau Theatre de la Grande Bretagne, published by Joseph Smith from 1719 onwards. The plan is based upon a rare two-sheet plan of Edinburgh drawn by James Gordon in 1647, and published by Johannes Blaeu in 1647, and later re-printed by Fredrick de Wit.

The present example was re-issued by John Bowles, circa 1814.
