THOMSON, John. [An unusual variant of Thomson's antique map of Scotland]
Scotland. Edinburgh, John Thomson, c.1830. Original colour. Map 600 x 540mm, with extra printed table borders, total 675 x 810mm, with marbled slipcase with title label. Slipcase worn.
Although the imprint states that this map was 'Drawn and Engraved for Thomson's New General Atlas', this example has been issued folded with an engraved text description of Scotland, a table of roads of Scotland, and a table of the places on the Mail Coach Road between Edinburgh and London via York. 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.

A superbly-detailed map of Scotland, a true group effort: the map itself was drawn by Frederick Carrington, the hatchuring of the many hills by George William Carrington; the printing plate was a mixture of engraving by John Dower and etching by Thomas Harwood; but the vignette of Melrose Abbey was drawn by Thomas Allom and engraved by Henry Griffiths. It was published as the map to accompany Samuel Lewis's 'Topographical Dictionary of Scotland'.
