by Saxton,Christopher/Hole, William

Condition: Light creases but on the whole very good

An early map of Scotland by English cartographer William Hole and published by Christopher Saxton. Saxton produced the first printed map of England and his maps are highly prized for their accuracy and high quality. His maps "are excellent in every way.....and set a standard and remained the base for succeeding county maps for over a hundred years" (Tooley-"Maps and Map Makers"). Lovely compass rose as well as a sea monster off the Hebrides Island.
