The East Part of Galloway. Being Part of the Shire of Kirkcudbright.
[London: Tho. Bowles, ... and John Bowles ... 1725]
Moll, Herman (b.1654?, d.1732)
Bowles, Thomas (b.Pre 1695, d.1767)
Bowles, John (b.1701, d.1779)
A map of the 'East Part of Galloway', including the eastern part of Kirkcudbrightshire between the Rivers Dee and Nith, as well as the western part of Dumfriesshire. The map appeared in Herman Moll's 1725 atlas of Scotland. The details suggest intriguing changes since Moll's time, from the spelling of features such as the Urr Water ('Orr' on the map) to the compelling 'Druym Cassh Twinty Schillings Land' near Mochrum and Loch Ken. The first known maps by Moll were of Europe and America and appeared in Sir Jonas Moore's 1681 work 'New Systeme of the Mathematicks containing.a new geography'.
