This fine map of Stirling County, Scotland was based on the work of Timothy Pont. Pont surveyed Scotland between 1595 and 1608. Unfortunately, Pont's maps were not published during his lifetime. This map appeared in Blaeu's atlas Scotland. The city and castle of Stirling are shown. A handsome map. Maps
