Caption: Map of the British Isles. 18th-century map of the regions of the Kingdom of Great Britain and the Kingdom of Ireland, making up the British Isles. Ireland is divided into four provinces: Ulster, Connaught, Leinster and Munster. Scotland is divided into northern and southern halves. Wales is marked as a separate region, and England is divided into the North, the Midlands, the West, the East, and the South. The scale at bottom right gives distances in English, Scottish and Irish miles, as well as two historical French units: French leagues and French marine leagues. This map, by French cartographer Guillaume de L'Isle (1675-1726), was published in Amsterdam.
