Abstract

This fully illustrated book examines Scotland’s maps as a form of history, from the earliest representations of the country by Ptolemy, through centuries of mapping to the most recent geographical representation in satellite imagery and geographical information systems. It presents a perspective on Scottish history and geography featuring the most significant manuscript and printed maps of Scotland, including those by Timothy Pont, Joan Blaeu, William Roy, and the Bartholomew firm of map makers. Chapters deal with depicting the nation through time, towns, the countryside, islands, seas and waters, travel and communication, mapping science, leisure and recreation, popular culture, and working with maps. Each section is supported by a detailed bibliography. - (HC)
