Scotland: Mapping the islands
Book Week Scotland's Map Day
Scotland: Mapping the Islands is a new book, published in October by Birlinn in association with the National Library of Scotland, which looks at the history and geography behind the many maps of Scotland’s islands. Two of the authors, the Geographer Royal for Scotland, Charles Withers, and the Library's Map Curator, Chris Fleet, will give a fully illustrated talk about the book and its central themes. There will also be a book signing with the three authors (including Margaret Wilkes) after the talk.
