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 Van Diemen's Land (Tasmania) surrounded by vignette views of Hobart, the residence of the Van Diemen's Land Company's agent and a Tasmanian Tiger.
