What was being adjusted in the British Isles in 1800? Anyone?
Their inclusion kind of skews the composition in ways that would afford more detail had they been left off... which leads me to wonder why the mapmaker had assigned them such priority. Not that they don't deserve it, of course, just that they must've been seen as a net plus to the anticipated audience of the map. Germans/U.K.ers: do the Shetland Islands hold some special significance to the German people?
(Please excuse me as I try to inform my ignorance; geographic rehabilitation is, for an ugly American, an ongoing process).
