Comments: Lovely town plan of Newcastle on Tyne in Northeast England, with the River Tyne running along the bottom edge. Includes districts, Railroads, and canals and five vignettes of notable buildings. No stains or chips usually seen in the Tallis series. The top margin, however, is closely 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.

I want to thank you for your excellent service. I telephoned to inquire about the availability of a book this past Wednesday morning. Michele informed me it was available and took my order at about 11 AM EST. The next day when I got home from work, I was astounded to find that the book had been delivered in the early afternoon -- less than 30 hours after the order. Now, I know that UPS deserves some credit, but such fast delivery would not have occurred if Michele (and perhaps others) had not worked extremely efficiently. The book was well packed and fully meets my expectations, and Michele even got my name right! You have demonstrated a level of service I hope all merchants would meet. Thanks again. - Guy Hasegawa
