Description

Maps can delight, educate and illuminate a nation's history and geography.

Where written documents are obvious resources in helping shape views of the past, maps powerfully illustrate how and why nations have come to be seen as they are. Scotland: Mapping the Nation is the first book to take Scotland's maps seriously as a form of Scottish history, from the earliest representations of Scotland by Ptolemy in the second century AD to the most recent mapping and geographical representation in GIS, satellite imagery and SATNAV.

Written by experts who have spent their lives working with maps and map history, Scotland: Mapping the Nation offers a fascinating and thought-provoking perspective on Scottish history and geography.

The book, produced in association with the National Library of Scotland, is beautifully illustrated with details of the most significant manuscript and printed maps of Scotland including those by Timothy Pont, Joan Blaeu, William Roy and the Bartholomew firm amongst many others.

Hardcover: 336 pages Product Dimensions: 24.8 x 3.6 x 25.4 cm
