Mapping the Islands

Charles WJ Withers, Christopher Fleet, Margaret Wilkes

Demonstrating the ‘lure and “pull” of maps and islands in combination’, this handsome volume illustrates and discusses over 150 maps – historical and contemporary – from the National Library of Scotland’s collection. The authors begin with an introductory chapter on cartography in Scotland since the 16th century; then, in broadly chronological order they use eight themes, including settlement, naming, navigation and natural resources, to describe the geography, history and culture of Scotland’s islands through their representation in maps.
