Description:

Early issue of Thomson’s map of the Channel Islands with inset views of Eddystone lighthouse and Freshwater Bay, Isle of Wight.

Thomson’s maps are often incorrectly dated as they often show a publication date of 1814 but were issued as, Thomson’s New General Atlas, which was first issued in 1817.

John Thomson (1804 - 1837)

Thomson was a Scottish cartographer, publisher and bookbinder active in Edinburgh during the early part of the 19th century. Thomson is generally one of the leading masters of the Edinburgh school of cartography which flourished from roughly 1800 to 1830. Thomson & his contemporaries (Pinkerton & Cary) redefined European cartography by abandoning typical 18th century decorative elements such as elaborate title cartouches and fantastic beasts in favor of detail and accuracy. Thomson's principle works include the Thomson's New General Atlas, published from 1817 to 1821.
