Maps by John Tallis

View the maps

Although he only issued one world atlas, "The Illustrated Atlas", John Tallis is among the best known of all map-makers and publishers. The maps from "The Illustrated Atlas" were first 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.
