Description: Map in two sheets. Lithograph with original hand outline. Each image measures 16.5" x 20.5".

Comments: This map of Scotland emphasizes the country's developing transportation in the early 19th century, particularly roads, railroads, and canals. Cities, towns, roads, and rivers are labeled, counties are outlined with colored borders, and relief is shown with hachures. An inset in the top left shows the Shetland Islands. Below the title is a key listing built and proposed railroads, and annotations scattered throughout the map indicate the distances between prominent cities. The map is in very good condition with no tears or chips. William Home Lizars (1788--1859) was an engraver and painter based in Edinburgh. After the death of father, Daniel Lazars, he took up the family engraving business and expanded into etching and copperplate printing. This lovely map of Scotland is a fine example of his work.

You've got yourself one happy customer at this end, folks. I've been looking for another copy of "West of the Indus" for nearly twenty years (I know, it's such a cultural wasteland out here in the provinces), and I never expected to find one with a dust jacket. I am amazed. Thank you so much. I've enjoyed many books over the years, but this one has always been one of my favorites. Now if I can just figure out how to share it with my friends without losing it... - Paul B.
