ORIGINAL

John Tallis (1818-1876) was famous for highly decorative steel-engraved city and country maps. In 1838 Tallis founded his own company John Tallis and Company to publish maps, atlases and other works. He worked with John Rapkin as his principal map engraver. In 1849 he published his splendid volume, “The Illustrated Atlas”. It comprised regional maps of the world, and, in some editions, a superb series of engraved city and town plans. Rapkin’s maps were relatively detailed for the time, and a usually sported a decorative, lattice, or single bar border. In addition to the designed borders, the maps were often embellished with superbly detailed architectural and panoramic vignettes by H Winkles. Original half leather binding with marbled boards. Raised bands and gilt title to spine. Two title pages, frontis page – Great Exhibitional Hall and decorative title page of London Publishing Company, second plainer title page for John Tallis dated 1851.

Base of rear hinge has 3 cm split. Previous owner’s names on FEP. (appear same family, see Warder). Unpaginated. Each map and plan is adorned with a decorative boarder and lovely vignettes of specific relevance to that particular area.
