The Scottish Map Jigsaw

This unique jigsaw, featuring of the most famous maps from the collection of the National Library of Scotland, will appeal to jigsaw fans of all ages and abilities.

The map has plenty of detail of the Scottish mainland and islands, and also includes vignettes of historical figures –James VI and I; his wife, Anne of Denmark; Henry, Prince of Wales; and Charles, Duke of York.

John Speed (1552–1629), known after his death ‘the English Mercator’, was one of the best-known mapmakers of his time, and also a noted historian. His atlas The Theatre of the Empire of Great Britain (1612) is his most well-known work, which he produced to accompany his monumental History of Great Britain, which was published in 1611.
