ABERDENE and BANF, Joan Blaeu (1654)This map of the Scottish province Aberdeen was published by Joan Blaeu (1598-1673) in his atlas of Scotland in 1654. Though the detailed descriptions commissioned by the Scottish Government and produced by Robert Gordon (1580-1661) formed the basis of the atlas, most images were directly copied from a manuscript by the Scottish cartographer Timothy Pont (c. 1560-1614). Gordon had completed the collection with eleven maps by his own hand, the map of Aberdeen being one of those.
