Scarce and highly detailed map of Scotland, published by Valk. The map locates towns, roads, rivers, lakes, islands, etc. Split top centrefold repaired on verso 10.4cms and 3cms bottom; small 'v' missing from top of centrefold, browning at margin edges and one slight nick else finely engraved, very detailed map in good condition.
