Archibald Fullarton and Co. was one of the leading publishers working in Glasgow, in the 19<sup>th century. Part of the company’s prolific output was a number of atlases, and books containing maps. The last series of 19<sup>th century maps to carry decorative features were those published by Fullarton & Co. from the 1840s.
Fullarton’s popular gazetteer, “Fullarton’s Parliamentary Gazetteer of England and Wales”, was illustrated with a series of finely engraved maps of the counties and is notable for the clarity and quality of calligraphy. Numerous editions of the Gazetteer were published, each with revised and up-dated maps. The maps are decorated with attractive vignette views relating to the county. The company also produced a world atlas with a similar format.
Given the decorative appeal of Fullarton maps they can be difficult to obtain. A typical Fullarton measures approximately 7 inches x 9 inches.
