Map of Scotland (1767)

This is a map of Scotland from ‘A General History of Scotland’ by William Guthrie, the second volume. It had torn from the book and the top corner was still attached. It was super wrinkled so I used a pair of hair straighteners to flatten it some for scanning. I separated the top corner from the book with a scalpel and reattached it to the map with transparent acid-free paper tape. It was too big to scan in one go and ended up as six scans that I straightened and jigsawed together on Photoshop. It was scanned in at 720 dpi, so it’s pretty high resolution but I had to resize it as a much smaller image to allow for upload here.

    1. It would be nice to have it scanned in 1 go. I don’t trust my photoshop jigsaw skills, though as far as I can see it’s turned out alright here.

    1. It had very much fallen out the book. I separated the wee ripped corner still in the book and added it back to the map with non-acidic transparent paper tape. Ironed it some, scanned it and jigsawed it back together again xx
