This fine map of the island of Islay, located in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland. This map 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. A handsome map. Maps
