Does any one know where I can find out more about John Brion, a geographical
modeller and constructor of relief maps. Is there a good bibliographical
reference book to cartographers which might include him?
I have an advert which gives a description of different types of services he
offers. That is stuck on the back an 1858 1" raised relief map of the
Environs of Brighton.
However I am interested in finding out when he was born, died and what other
things he worked on. I know that some of work was published by Edward
On a slightly related note, does any one know how easy it would be to remove
nicotine stains from a hand coloured wooden relief map? The 1" map of
Brighton was probably hanging in a pub for many years, which is how it
aquired the nicotine stains. It would be interesting to have them removed,
but not at the expense of the original cartographic work.
