John Bartholomew

John Bartholomew — who, along with his two brothers, was “the last generation of the Edinburgh cartographic family to run the business of John Bartholomew & Son Ltd.” — has died aged 85, the Edinburgh Evening News reports. The Edinburgh-based family firm was first founded in 1826, according to the Wikipedia entry; it merged with Collins in 1989. Among its products was an atlas produced for The Times: the descendant of the 1922 Times Survey Atlas of the World is still being published today.
