Full Title: A New and Correct Map of Scotland or North Britain with all the Post and Military Roads, Divisions &ca. Drawn from the Most Approved Surveys Illustrated with Many Additional Improvements, and Regulated by the Latest Astronomical Observations by Lieutenant Campbell
Stunning wall map of Scotland from 4 sheets ( here joined to 2 sheets ready to be joined)
The map was prepared by Admiral Surveyor Lieutenant Robert Campbell. Includes an inset of the Shetlands on the same scale and a table of distances on the stage routes.
This map was first issued by Marcus Armstrong in 1782. Robert Sayer's re-issue had extensive re-working of all four plates on the basis of information supplied by Campbell. The Northwest 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. The map includes a new cartouche and title.
Original outline colour
Repair near Lewis, some light offsetting otherwise good for the large map that is often damaged due to size.
