Map. Steel engraving with original hand outline. Image measures 10" x 13".
Clean minimal map with typical Tallis vignettes: "Fall of the Bagota", "Paramaribo" and "Chimborazo". 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. He is remembered as one of the last decorative map makers, and this lovely map exemplifies his work.
