Old Map of the Isle of Islay Scotland 1654 by Johan Blaeu from the Atlas Novus

This detailed and most attractive reproduction map of The Isle of Islay has been carefully art worked from a scan of an antique original. The famous firm of Dutch cartographers and publishers was established in the late 16th century by Willem Janszoon Blaeu in Amsterdam. Blaeu was a maker of globes and scientific instruments and purchased some of his early map plates from Jodocus Hondius. From this small beginning was to emerge one of the largest and most prolific map publishing houses of the seventeenth century
