Australia decorative little Heritage Editions Tallis map (c1851).

by Tallis & Company, John

This lovely Tallis Australia map, with finely-engraved border & vignettes, is one of only 500 prints reproduced from a finely-detailed and intricately engraved map, originally published by Tallis & Company circa 1851.

The publishing firm of Tallis flourished from 1835 to 1860, and were renowned for their fine steel-engraved maps and prints. Tallis maps were among the last decorative maps published. All their maps were adorned by decorative borders and small views (vignettes) of cities, native fauna & flora, or people of the region.

This map is black and white. The decorative vignettes around the map may be hand-tinted with watercolour (next listing).

Map size: 28 x 36cm (11 x 14 inches).
