Dunbartonshire (Siorrachd Dhùn Bhreatainn in Gaelic) or the County of Dumbarton is a lieutenancy area and registration county in the west central Lowlands of Scotland lying to the north of the River Clyde.It was a county used as a primary unit of local government with its county town and administrative centre at the town of Dumbarton. In 1975 the administration section was transferred to the Council.Dumbartonshire County Council, set up under the Local Government (Scotland) Act 1889, adopted the spelling "Dunbartonshire" by 1914,The area had been previously been part of the historic district of Lennox>, which was a duchy in the Peerage of Scotland related to the Duke of Lennox.



A new map of Dumbarton  Shire from the best Authorities by T.Kitchin 
dated in pencil 1773 . 235 x 185.Hand coloured; signs of old folds,  good.rare  £65 inc postage

Info:-Kitchin was an important London engraver and publisher who also held the post of Hydrographer to King George II. His output of atlases and maps covered a working period of more than thirty years and included more than a dozen maps of Scotland, this first pocket atlas and a series of Scottish county maps published in the London Magazine between 1763 and 1781. His 1745 engraving of John Elphinstone's map of Scotland marked a notable advance in accuracy, particularly of the mainland, and the 32 maps of this atlas are all clearly based on this depiction, with some additional names from Moll. It is interesting to note that the three maps of the Lothian counties are all noted as ''surveyed by Mr. Adair''  and may be related to the Cooper engravings of c1735-37.
In 1698, Martin Martin travelled with John Adair on his surveying expedition to the north west of Scotland. During the summer months, Adair surveyed the west coast of Ross, Skye and the Western Isles from Lewis to Uist, producing a journal, seven charts and two sheets of views of the coasts, which were to form the second volume of his  Description of the Sea Coast and Islands of Scotland. Martin was factor to Lord MacLeod on Skye and may have acted as interpreter for Adair. Certainly, he was also involved in the animosity between Adair and Sibbald, who wrote of Martin's description of the Isle of Skye, ''It heth him coast much paines & expense, and John Adair in steed of rewarding him as he promised, heth treated him scurvily''. A map of St. Kilda accompanied Martin's A  Late Voyage to St. Kilda which was published in 1698. Whether Martin was the original cartographer of these charts or made use of Adair's manuscripts cannot be ascertained but this depiction is completely different from those of Mercator  and Blaeu and it was to be the basis of maps by Moll and Kitchin.
