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 five decorative vignettes around the map depicting Monte Video, boats on the Rio Negro, St Catharina, Rio De Janeiro, and Cape St Antonio, Bahia.
