ANNANDIAE Praefectura, Vulgo THE STEWARTRIE of ANNANDAIL.
[Amsterdam] : Blaeu, 
Blaeu, Joan (b.1596, d.1673)
Pont, Timothy (b.1564, d.Circa 1614)
This map shows south Dumfriesshire from the River Esk in the east to the Lochar Water in the west, including the catchment of the Kirtle Water and lower Annandale south of Dalton and Castlemilk. Castles are prominent, as is the 'Tour of Repenta[n]ce', south of Hoddam Castle. Coverage of Upper Annandale on the northwest margins of this map appears to be incomplete and is not covered by any other map by Blaeu. 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, for publication in Blaeu's Atlas Novus, first published in 1654.
