George Taylor and Andrew Skinner's Survey and maps of the roads of North Britain or Scotland, 1776

Taylor and Skinner's Survey and maps of the roads of North Britain or Scotland decorative graphic

George Taylor and Andrew Skinner's volume, published in 1776, shows over 3,000 miles of roads in Scotland, across 61 plates, and was effectively Scotland's first road atlas. The roads were individually surveyed, and drawn at a scale of one-inch to the mile. Each page is divided into three vertical strips, showing the route along a particular road. The maps are a useful supplement to county mapping for showing the detail of places along particular major routes, and names of significant landowners are also included.
