This lovely Victorian map of the city of Bath displays three charming vignette views depicting famous landmarks, showing the Royal Crescent, the Abbey Church, and St Michael's Church. By this time the accuracy and practicality of maps were generally considered of greater importance than were aesthetic qualities, therefore making these qualities unusual for the period. Between 1850 and 1860, Tallis published an extremely attractive series of town and city plans, engraved by Rapkin, with vignettes of scenes and buildings taken from Dugdale's Curiosities. This detailed plan is clearly marked with the Great Western Railway and station but excludes the railway from Green Park station. Trimmed but laid on archivist board.
