The slipcase label reads 'A New Travelling Map of Scotland... Constructed from Mr Arrowsmith's Celebrated map... Published by John Thomson & Co.'. Curiously, the map appears to be printed on the verso of sheets of other Thomson maps: the Scotland map on 'The Southern Hemisphere'; the Scottish road table on 'Denmark and the Faroe Islands'; and 'the Edinburgh-London table on South America'. This is only obvious when held up to the light.

The author was, however, William Harvey (1796-1873), a London Doctor and Journalist, best-known for his book 'London Scenes and London People', 1863. The maps contain many references to the political changes sweeping through continental Europe, with representations of Garibaldi and Bismarck.
