One of the first maps published of the The Emin Pasha Relief Expedition, led by Henry Morton Stanley, undertook to rescue Emin Pasha by going up the Congo River and then through the Ituri Forest, an extraordinarily difficult route that resulted in the loss of two-thirds of the expedition. The map is dated January  29, 1887.

 

John George Bartholomew (1860 - 1920)

John George Bartholomew brought the firm to prominence. In particular, J.G. Bartholomew made the firm a publisher of its own works, rather than a producer of maps for other firms. He was the fourth John George Bartholomew of this famous map making family. He took over the business at 28 years of age, became Cartographer to King George V and was the founder of the Scottish Geographical Society.
