Scotland Map originally published to accompany Black’s Picturesque Tourist Guide of Scotland in 1840. Hand drawn map of how Scotland looked in the 19th century.

This pull out map which was referred to in the Black’s Guide as an ‘accurate travelling map’. The hand drawn map has the counties at the time highlighted with coloured boundaries – something that would have been printed layer by layer, starting with the main black text and shading and then a separate printing for each colour over the black, one colour at a time.

Black’s Guide to Scotland was featured in the recent TV series Grand Tours of Scotland when Paul Murton used his guide to reveal historical changes in the landscape.

The guide has been re-published and is available to accompany this map. ISBN 9780008251147
