Tallis Africa

Published by J[ohn] Tallis & Co., as part of his Illustrated Atlas, 1851.

Steel engraving with outline colour. The map drawn and engraved by J. Rapkin; the illustrations drawn by J. Marchant and engraved by J.H. Kernot.

Image size: 10" x 12 3/4" approx. plus margins.

Generally good condition throughout, vertical fold as issued, small closed tear to lower margin not affecting image.

As expected of Tallis, this is a quite detailed map of the region, showing the explored areas mainly around the coastline and the rivers running inland, mountain ranges denoted by hachure. The map is surrounded by vignettes include a Bedouin Arabs encampment, wild bushmen and a view of St Helena.
