Bartholomew's Half-Inch Maps
The good companion for the wise traveller
Bartholomew's revised "half-inch" contoured
maps were published throughout the greater part of the twentieth
century at the Edinburgh Geographical Institute by John
Bartholomew & Son Ltd.
The map key below shows the meaning of the
major symbols, for features such as roads, railway lines,
canals, golf courses, National Trust properties etc., used on
the half inch map series, extracts of which are reproduced on
