This is my oldest set of maps yet! This double page map of China and Japan was engraved by a very well know family of engravers.

Here's a little history from Wikpedia:

George Bartholomew (8 January 1784 – 23 October 1871, active from 1797) worked as an engraver for Daniel Lizars in Edinburgh. His son, John Bartholomew Senior (1805 - 9 April 1861), began working independently in about 1826, founding the firm that bears his name. Notable work included Black’s General Atlas of 1846.

John Bartholomew Junior (1831–1893) and his son John George Bartholomew (1860–1920) 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. John (Ian) Bartholomew (1890–1962) oversaw the Times Survey Atlas of the World (1922) and later the Mid-Century Edition of the Times Atlas of the World (1955-60).

Given the date of this map, 1877, I would say it was done by John Bartholomew Junior (1831-1893).

Measures approx. 11 1/2" x 17 1/4". Folded down the middle. No tears on this one! Beautifully aged, blank on the back.

Excellent map to add to your antique collection of maps!
Wonderful piece of history.

You will receive the original map, not a copy and it will be mailed carefully in a stay flat to prevent bending or folding.
