The title page to Herman Moll's 'A Set of Thirty Six New and Correct Maps of Scotland', published in 1725. The 36 maps include two made previously, 'Scotia Antiqua' by Robert Gordon, and a map of 'Scotland divided into its shires' by Moll. There are three types of county maps: those with one county (e.g., Angus), those with part of a county (e.g., the west part of Kirkcudbrightshire), and those with two or more counties (e.g., 'Fife and Kinros'). Moll was probably born in the mid-1650s in the north German city of Bremen, and arrived in London by the late 1670s.
