The Atlas of Scotland
Available in Stock
In 1832, John Thomson (1777–c.1840) advertised his new county Atlas of Scotland as 'one of the completest systems of Topography published' and it is indeed a landmark, described in the introduction to this facsimile as 'the culmination of the engraved, hand-coloured map-printing tradition in Scotland'. The 58 folio maps and accompanying views, gazetteers, geographical texts and consulting index are presented here with introductory essays placing Thomson's work in the wider context of atlas production. Limited edition of 800. Slipcased.
