Regnum Scotiae... Magnae Britanniae..
1700. Bella edecorativa mappa della Scozia con le Isole Orcadi delineate nel cartiglio in alto a destra. Tratta dall'atlante dei fratelli Valk, edito ad Amsterdam ai primi del '700. Incisione in rame, bellissima coloritura coeva, piccoli restauri al verso, per il resto in ottime condiziioni. An attractive but rather strangely contorted map of the mainland and islands, with the Orkneys delineated in an inset panel. Very detailed but designed on a projection constricting the north - south axis. Gerard and Leonard Valk are best known as republishers of earlier mapmakers' plates. However, here their own work shows precision in engraving with a wealth of placenames. Amsterdam Amsterdam 590 490
