Dutch edition. A glorious, highly detailed map of north eastern Scotland by Blaeu, based on the earlier surveys of Robert Gordon. Map is orientated to the north. One of the central features of the map is the River Spey, the second longest and the fastest-flowing river in Scotland. It is important for salmon fishing and whisky production. A decorative, rococo style title cartouche dominates the upper left corner of the map.

Size: 540 640 mm. Copperplate engraving with hand colour. Map has been cleaned and strengthened. Good condition.
