United States : J. Tallis

click here to view a large version in a separate window

A decorative and detailed map of the United States, decorated with portraits of Franklin and Washington, and vignettes of the Washington Monument, a buffalo hunt, and trade between Native Americans and Europeans. Although he only issued one world atlas, "The Illustrated Atlas", 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. An attractive and very carefully coloured example of one of the earliest maps to illustrate the Republic of Texas.
