Thompson, Master Henry: Palestine
ink and watercolour; image with border 46 x 39 cm. on Bristol board paper, 3 sheets stuck together. some slight dusting, foxing, discolouration.
A very charming and well drawn map of Palestine with Cyprus, drawn by Master Henry Thompson, at Elson House Academy, near Gosport. The map is very detailed and reminds of a Tallis map. With an inset of a Plan of Jerusalem.
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!
