TEVIOTIA Vulgo TIVEDAIL
[Amsterdam: Blaeu, 1654]
Blaeu, Joan (b.1596, d.1673)
Pont, Timothy (b.1564, d.Circa 1614)
A map of Teviotdale, bounded to the northeast by the River Tweed from Carham and Kelso to Melrose, including the catchments of the River Teviot, the Ale Water, the Ettrick Water below Gamescleuch, the Yarrow Water below the Loch of Lowes and a stretch of the Tweed above Galashiels. The map provides a unique record, primarily of a dense distribution of small settlements, but also of mills, churches, castles, large houses and some woodland. The map was compiled from observation on the ground by Timothy Pont in the last two decades of the sixteenth century. It was engraved in Amsterdam from Pont's draft manuscript, for publication in Blaeu's Atlas Novus, first published in 1654, with later editions until 1664.
