The map and the man who made it

This map of Scotland was published in von Reilly’s ‘Grosser deutscher Atlas’, issued between 1794 and 1796; von Reilly (1766-1820) published the first Austrian world atlases. James Dorret published a landmark map of Scotland in 1750, which served as a model for von Reilly over forty years later. Standing on the shoulders of giants, and all that.
