•*The maps reduced from the Ordnance Survey Sheets of Scotland, which are being pub-
lished by Messrs A. & C. Black, Edinburgh, are deserving of a special word of praise, both
on account of the care and skill with which they are delineated, and for the handy, portable
shape in which they are issued. The scale— half-an-inch to the mile— is sufficiently large
to allow of every farm, patch of wood, streamlet, or eminence likely to attract the notice of
the tourist bemg plainly denoted, and Mr John Bartholomew has shown excellent judgment,
as well as bestowed great pains in selecting the materials for the maps from the larger
sheets. The heights of all the noteworthy eminences are given, but the roads and byeways
of the country are indicated with special care. The result is a map at once clear, full, and
accurate, and having the additional recommendations of being well mounted, tastefully
tinted, and of convenient size."— Scof.sma7i, 26th May 1875.
" We speak advisedly when we say that these maps are the only existing tourist's maps
that can be depended upon for the exact distance from place to place marked on them. Not
one of the hundreds of cheap maps even pretend to accuracy in this respect. . . . We have
no doubt wliatever that they will at once supersede all existing maps, not only for the
purposes of the tourist, but for all general purposes."— Courant.
'• After a most careful scrutiny of the many points and places of interest on the West
Coast, we can testify to the skill and accuracy of Mr Bartholomew ; while it is an additional
recommendation that the delicacy and clearness of the engraving render the maps pleataiit
to the eye." — North British Daily Mail.
