Comments: Lovely town plan of York in North Yorkshire on the River Ouse. Includes districts, Railroads, and canals and vignettes of notable buildings and sights. The historic York Minster can be seen near the center of the map, with a small image in the upper-left corner. No stains or chipping, with a small tear in the right margin not affecting the image. The top margin, however, is considerably cropped. John Tallis Jr. (1817-1876) was a London born bookseller who continued the prolific map publishing company started by his father. After a partnership with his brother, Tallis Jr. expanded the business to New York in 1849 as well as Boston, Cincinnati, Rochester, Philadelphia and Baltimore. This well known series of eighty maps was published in "Tallis's illustrated atlas and modern history of the world". This map is from the rare supplementary town plan series.

As an Interior Decorator I am on the constant lookout for source material for my clients. I recently completed a Studio pied a terre in the Georgian period for Mr. David Brown at Lincoln Center. That is, we were almost finished with only the artwork to be designed and purchased. I have a passion for antique architectural prints and I can't believe that I didn't know about Argosy Books. After all Designers don't really like to share their finds with others. I was in a cab, looking out the window as we passed by Argosy Books and noticed a fine selection of framed prints hanging in the window. I had found my oasis! I now head first to Argosy for all my print work and framing. What a treasure and a real lifesaver for design business! Thanks eternal. - Aaron James
