Although he only issued one world atlas, John Tallis is among the best known of all map-makers and publishers. The maps were issued in 1851 to commemorate the Great Exhibition in London and are considered the last series of decorative maps of the world, combining fine cartographical detail within an elaborate and attractive border. This particular map showing the Azores, Madeira, Bermuda, the Canaries and Cape Verde has six vignettes around the map depicting Fayal and Pico in Azores, Funchal in Madeira, Teneriffe in the Canary Islands and a chapel in the rock at St Vicente, Cape De Verde.
