Description: Map, in two sheets. Copper plate engraving with original outline hand color. Each page measures 24" x 40".

Comments: This large, two-part wall map of Scotland depicts the country in intricate detail. Hand-colored lines divide and subdivide shires, and the index also includes forts, roads, military routes, and sites of battles. Mountains are depicted pictorially, and bodies of water such as lochs are all labeled. At the upper right is a large inset of the Shetland Islands. The upper left corner contains a decorative title cartouche set within a landscape and displaying Scotland's coat of arms and several canons. The lower left contains a key of "the most remarkable places in Scotland." Ships decorate the surrounding water. The map is in good condition with little edgewear. Minor offsetting throughout, and a small hole in the lower left. Thomas Kitchin (1719-1784) was an English engraver and map-maker. His maps and atlases of England earned him the position of hydrographer to the King. This large map of Scotland is an impressive example of his work.
