Map of Scotland in 45 irregularly shaped pieces measuring 230 mm x 280 mm (complete but one piece is a modern replacement). Victorian style printing on paper and laid on to thin single-thickness (i.e. not plywood) board before cutting into pieces which are mostly the approximate shape of county depicted. Board reverse was covered with plain green paper before cutting. Map reminiscent of Philips. Wooden box with Royal arms illustration has imprint “WILLIAM PEACOCK, LONDON.” in frame. Box split across bottom with no real loss. Includes fold-out copy of completed map at measuring 230 mm x 280 mm with imprint “GALL & INGLIS, 6 GEORGE STREET, EDINBURGH” below centre.
