A set of four old maps of Scotland which depict all of Scotland in impressive detail from the Lowlands through to the Hebrides. Three of the four maps in this pack were first published in London in 1834 by the 'Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge'. Printed on three large parchment sheets, these maps portray Scotland in the early 19th century and include a table of place and name changes.
Towns, villages, shires and roads are shown, clearly drawn in the "scientific" style of mapmaking popular at the time.
The fourth map is a small 1805 map of Scotland, which is helpful for locating various shires and shire towns at a glance.
This map set is an ideal resource for finding your ancestral lands and places, from Scotland's industrial cities to the more rural areas of mountain, heather and glen.< The maps are slightly larger than A4 size when folded, but the three bigger ones open out to 46cm x 61cm (18" x 24").
