Collection: John Emslie Prints

John Emslie (1813–1875) was a British cartographer, artist & bookplate engraver.

Emslie created and oversaw the design, hand colouring and engraving of educational artworks. His art was published through James Reynolds & Sons of 174 Strand, London.
In 1850, Emslie hand painted and engraved a series of 44 charts and posters, in response to the popular demand for information on the developments taking place in science and engineering as a result of the Industrial Revolution. The educational series ran 1850-1860 and covered topics of geology, geography, astronomy and natural philosophy.
