    Scotia!

    This tiny map of Scotland was engraved by Pieter van den Keere for the Caert-thresoor published by Cornelis Claesz and Barent Langenes in 1598. Degrees of latitude were added in the two-line border and the map was reissued in early editions of Bertius’ ‘Tabularum geographicarum contractarum’ from 1600.
