Map of the Clans and Tartans of Scotland

This map of Scotland indicates the general sphere of influence held by the clans and considerable families at the beginning of the 17th century. Some clans and families held small areas of land, and if their names are not on this map, they were not necessarily landless. The areas representing the ancient Principalities of Scotland are indicated on the map. Scotland has a rich and enduring culture steeped in history. One of the most distinctive features, of which are probably that of clanship and the predominantly Highland clans. Highland dress and the tartan is a powerful symbol of the wearerAEs pride in a Scottish ancestry and in Scotland itself. There are few, if any, other forms of national dress which can claim to make such a clear and unequivocal statement, and to be so instantly and widely recognisable

Map is very detailed, with the inclusion of rivers, lochs, mountains, cities, villages and castles. With decorative title and scale cartouches, the former surrounded by regional figures and their livestock. Dedication is in a fantastically detailed cartouche, the Scottish rampant lion crest flanked by two further lions and with the motto conscia virtus'. Some of the decoration has been picked out in gold. Latin text to verso. From Blaeu's Atlas Novus'. The famous firm of Dutch cartographers and publishers was established in the late 16th century by Willem Janszoon Blaeu in Amsterdam. Blaeu was a maker of globes and scientific instruments and purchased some of his early map plates from Jodocus Hondius. From this small beginning was to emerge one of the largest and most prolific map publishing houses of the seventeenth century

Each Parish is numbered using an index table, colour rendition beautifully differentiating all of the Parishes. As well as principal roads, towns, villages and hamlets, these county maps of Scotland feature key battle sites marked with two crossed swords and the date of the battle.
