About the Book
Following the continued success of the Scottish Maps Calendar, Birlinn is once again proud to collaborate with the National Library of Scotland.
This new calendar features more of the most beautiful maps of Scotland ever made. From the very earliest
representations of Scotland in the second century AD, through the first printed maps of the 16th century and the
achievement of the Ordnance Survey in the 1920s and 1930s to the most recent satellite imagery, these images tell the story of a nation.
