PRINTING SPECIMENS. W. & A.K. JOHNSTON. - W. & A.K. Johnstons' [sic] Specimen Book of School Wall Maps & Illustrations, terrestrial and celestial globes, school & scientific atlases.

Edinburgh, Johnston [189-?]. Slender quarto 30x22cm publisher's decorated cloth; 32pp, illustrated in colour throughout. Bumps and creases in the covers, less so inside; still a good, quite fresh copy. ¶ Full size details with prices from their range of educational wall maps and prints, atlases and globes. These varnished, cloth mounted plates and maps on rollers were ubiquitous in schools all over the English speaking world - except maybe in midwest America where home grown products had the edge. The title page features an impressive battery of medals won at exhibitions from Melbourne to Bermuda between 1851 and 1892. Worldcat finds one of these at the National Library of Scotland, I can't find one anywhere else.
