Principal Story of Roseneath House, And Bird eye View of Flower Garden [in ink].
1843.
Pen and ink and watercolour plan, sheet 493 x 322mm. Creases and nicks top edge, outside image, otherwise good.
Rosneath is a village in Argyll and Bute, Scotland. Rosneath Castle was ruined and rebuilt many times; the final rebuilding came in 1803, three years after the previous building burnt down. Located further uphill from previous versions, it belonged to the Duke of Argyll whose family retained it until Princess Louise, daughter of Queen Victoria who had married into the family, died in 1939. In stark contrast to the earlier incarnations, it was in the Italianate style. An attractive manuscript plan, with compass points and scale below.

The Iles of Hebrides w.th ther borderers.
The Iles of Hebrides w.th ther borderers.
Petrus Kærius Cælavit.
[London, George Humble, c.1627.]
Engraved map. 90 x 125mm, 3½ x 5".
A miniature map of western Scotland, orientated with north to the right. Although it is commonly referred to as a 'miniature Speed', this map in fact pre-dates Speed's atlas, having been engraved in 1599 for a Dutch edition of Camden's 'Britannia'. Later the copper plates were sold to George Humble, the London publisher, who had the original Latin titles of the maps replaced with English ones, albeit rather crudely phrased, as this one, and plate numbers added. He published the miniature alongside the folio Speed atlases from 1627, forever linking the two. The engraver, Pieter van den Keere (1571-1646), had a long career: he was still engraving maps at 74, nearly fifty years after he engraved this map.
