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 , drawn and engraved by J.Rapkin, within an elaborate and attractive border. This particular map has three vignettes entitled: "Sultan Mahmoud's Minars And Fortress, Ghuznee", "Lahore", and "Boats On The Indus". With its finely coloured and engraved decorative floral border, this is a highly attractive map. Light marginal discolouration not affecting image.
