Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. John Adair (c. 1655-1722) was a Scottish surveyor and mapmaker, noted for the excellence of his maps. He first came to public notice in 1683, with a prospectus published in Edinburgh for a "Scottish Atlas" stating that the Privy Council of Scotland had engaged Adair, a "mathematician and skilfull mechanick," to survey the shires of Scotland. He surveyed the coast of Scotland from 1686, and was made a fellow of the Royal Society in 1688. The only part of the coastal survey appeared in 1703.
