John Tallis established a publishing house that was to gain an enviable reputation for the printing of finely engraved and very decorative maps and prints. Using intricately engraved borders to surround  the subject matter, and adding further detail of small 'vignettes' of related subjects, John Tallis became renowned for the quality of his publications. Succeeding his father in the business, he first partnered his brother and expanded to New York. He later joined forces with Ephraim Tipton Brain to form The London Printing and Publishing Company.

Over the years, these distinctive engravings have become much sought after, collected, and hand-tinted with watercolour. The page size is 285 x 190mm (11.75 x 7.5 inches)
