Comments: Lovely town plan of Preston in Lancashire, England, bordered to the south by the River Ribble. Includes districts, Railroads, and canals and seven vignettes of notable buildings. No stains or cropping usually seen in the Tallis series. Minor chips to top edge and bottom left corner not affecting the image. 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.
