Thompson, Master Henry :  Europe.

Gosport c1855

ink and watercolour; image with border 26,5 x 32,5 cm. on Bristol board paper, 3 sheets stuck together. some slight dusting, foxing, discolouration.

A very charming and well drawn map of Europe, drawn by Master Henry Thompson, at Elson House Academy, near Gosport. The map is very detailed and reminds of Tallis’ map of Europe. 

Young Master Henry was a pupil at Elson House Academy, and he seems to have been quite accomplished in drawing maps. I have been lucky to buy several of his maps and can only hope he got top marks!
