Bartholomew, more than Ordnance Survey, concentrate on the traveller- The Railway traveller at first and the Road traveller in the 20th century. Red flags marking distance became a feature of their road maps. County borders are also well defined and the whole effect is a much more colourful piece of lithographic cartography than an equivalent OS piece. It has, perhaps one visual fault, that is: that colour gradation for height can easily be interpreted as vegetation growth or lack of it- and though the two are not unrelated- the parallel is far from exact.
Very unfussy and uncomplicated border legends also add to its attractiveness. A revision date is given in the margin here, combined with the OS acknowledgement; both are not always present. They are, in a sense, a return to an earlier form of cartography in which pictorial art combined with cartography.

Augustinian bishop, compiler of patristic compendia; d. He served the last three years of his life as bishop of his native city of Urbino. In papal documents he is called Bartholomeus Hominis de Taiuti Ditaiuti or Dio ti aiuti , of which the name given by certain Augustinian historians, Bartholomeus Simonis de Carusis, may be a corruption.
He was a student at the universities of bologna and paris and after was a teacher at Bologna, where no doubt he began his friendship with a fellow teacher, the canonist joannes andreae. It was there, too, that he must have first met petrarch. From Petrarch’s pen there is a letter to Bartholomew Fam. This opus by Bartholomew, the widely used and still valuable Milleloquium veritatis s. Augustini Lyons , suggested by the Hieronymianus of Joannes Andreae, reveals in its compiler a knowledge of the writings of St.

The purpose of the society is to advance the subject of geography worldwide, inspire people to learn more about the world around them and provide a source of reliable and impartial geographical information. The RSGS delivers these core aims by producing a quarterly magazine, an annual programme of Inspiring People talks, a research journal and a range of other publications. From its base in Perth, the society also operates a volunteer-led visitor centre, hosts an array of international exhibitions each year, and curates an archive dating back to its roots in In addition, by working with partners around Scotland and further afield, the society encourages the teaching of geography in the curriculum, produces classroom resources for teachers, and facilitates thinking on issues such as climate change, city development and transport infrastructure, amongst many others.
Between and , Sir Ernest Shackleton worked as the Secretary of the society before starting his career as an Antarctic explorer. Since , the society has been housed within Lord John Murray House in Perth; the society’s visitor centre is next door in the Fair Maid’s House, the oldest secular building in the city. The originator of the idea for a national society of geography in Scotland was John George Bartholomew , of the Bartholomew family and map-making company in Edinburgh. Bartholomew felt that there was a low quality of map craftsmanship within Britain and a lack of geographical societies as compared with the rest of Europe, and set out to investigate the situation in other countries, particularly in Germany.
As a result of this he began work in establishing a geographical society for Scotland.
