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 has three vignettes entitled, "Entrance To Port Natal", "Seal Of Natal", and "Port Natal And Town Of Durban". This example just trimmed at top and bottom edge of decoration.
