Although he only issued one world atlas, "The Illustrated Atlas", which also included some town plans, John Tallis is among the best known of all map-makers and publishers. The maps from "The Illustrated Atlas" were first 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 is a finely engraved map of New Zealand surrounded by vignette views of Auckland, Wellington, Mt. Egmont, together with a portrait of a native Maori, all enveloped in native New Zealand strap-work. Accompanied by a sheet of text.
