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 covering the entire Arabian peninsula has three vignettes entitled: "Arab Women", "Mount Sinai", and "Arabs". The map is also of interest for its relatively accurate Gulf coastlines although only a few of countries and Emirates now so familiar are identifed.
