1924-1940: One sheet line system, two series
The 1-inch Popular Edition of Scotland was introduced in 1924. It used the same projection as the 1-inch Popular Edition (England & Wales), thus the contemporary series for Scotland and for England & Wales were, for the first time, completely compatible. Despite this, the two series were numbered separately.
1-inch Popular Edition of Scotland cover (c.1924)
1-inch Popular Edition of Scotland cover (c.1932)
The sheets of the 1-inch Popular Edition of Scotland were issued in a very patriotic Ellis Martin cover design (Figure 1). Scotland Sheets 86 and 89 wholly coincided with England [& Wales] Sheets 3 and 5, and can be found inside covers from either series.
Publication of the series was completed in 1932, around which time the size of the covers was increased to afford greater protection to the outer folds of the map within. This led to an adjustment of the cover design. (Figure 2)
