John Thomson (1814 - 1869)

Profile :
John Thomson produced two major works in his life time, A New General atlas of the World, 1814-28 and Atlas of Scotland1820-32. The maps from A New General atlas of the World were printed in full hand coloring from large copperplate engravings. The level of detail at the time of publication was heralded as a breakthrough in British cartography and Thompson rightly earned a great deal of attention and his work copied for a number of years
