Dear all,

I need a detail for Koeman's Atlantes Neerlandici vol. II -- which will be published end of this year (hopefully).

The map 'Coila Provincia. The Province of Kyle' by Timothy Pont in the Scotland volume of the Theatrum Orbis Terrarum and the Atlas Maior has the dedication to "Nobilissimo et Ornatissima Iuveni Iacobo, Frenderetti Vicecomiti, Crichtonii Domino, etc."

As is the use in the Atlantes Neerlandici, the name of the dedicatee is given in its modern form. Who has for me the modern of this James, to whom Robert Gordon dedicated his map of Kyle?

Thanks in advance,
