recent arrival
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: "Gold Washers", "Mexican Peasantry", and "Ruins At Uxmal, Yucatan". The map is also of great interest for its focus on Texas, a very early representation, and California pre-Statehood. Although the Pacific coastline is well delineated as far inland as the Sierra Nevada, there is little detail in "The Great Interior Basin". very up-to-date, the map has yellow colouration indicating the areas of "newly discovered GOLD districts ..." . An interesting and very attractive map.
