Forwarded below is the Tuesday, 31 July mailing to ‘Lis-maps’ from the National Library of Scotland; even deleting the image, it might be of interest to some.
“To commemorate the centenary of Bartholomew's Survey Atlas of Scotland (1912), the Library has recently released color versions http://maps.nls.uk/atlas/bartholomew/index.html
of all the half-inch to the mile regional topographic maps in the Atlas, as well as a seamed, geo-referenced mosaic of these sheets. This allows Bartholomew's stunning layer-colored maps from 1912 to be directly compared to the present day. You can read more about this, along with other map news, research and updates, in the latest issue of Cairt, the newsletter of the Scottish Maps Forum http://www.nls.uk/media/1030320/cairt21.pdf
