DETAILS

Attractive map of England and Wales characterized by Thomson's high level of detail, from his New General Atlas.

John Thomson (1777-1840) was a Scottish cartographer from Edinburgh celebrated for his 1817 New General Atlas, published by himself in Edinburgh, John Cumming in Dublin, and Baldwin, Cradock & Joy in London. Thomson maps are known for their lovely color and size, representing some of the finest cartographic art of the 19th century.

CONDITION NOTES

In good condition with several old repairs near the centerfold and margins. These would hardly show if the map were to be matted and framed.
