SKU: pigo/scot/001 Category:

A very attractive and detailed 19th century map of Scotland which was published in [James] Pigot & Co.’s British Atlas* (Manchester & London:1830-1840).

*The (county) maps from ‘Pigot & co.’s British Atlas’ were the first to be engraved from steel plates as opposed to copper. In the early 19th century the rapid rise in both the population and literacy rate had seen an increased demand for books and printed material. Copper, the traditional medium used for engraving, was no longer capable of keeping up with this on account of its limited durability, hence, the introduction of the more harder and longer lasting steel.

  • This is an original steel engraving with fine original hand colour.
  • Printed area is approximately 52.2cms by 68.2cms (including imprint).
  • The map is in very good condition with decent margins; horizontal and vertical folds, as issued. There is a minor repaired split where in the folds meet. Click on image for a better view.

  • Guaranteed to be over 180 years old.
