Slezer's Scotland

"Some of the first drawings made of places in Scotland are now online more than 300 years after they were produced. In Slezer's Scotland we provide the complete first edition of Theatrum Scotiae. This volume of engravings of towns, castles and palaces was produced and published in 1693 by a military engineer. It was the first time that Scotland had been portrayed in pictures" - National Library of Scotland
