Asia

Thibet, Mongolia and Mandchouria

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 H. Winkles and engraved by G. Greatbach.

Image size: 9 3/4"  x 12 3/4" approx. plus margins.

Generally good condition throughout. Small loss to extreme left border, not affecting image.

As expected of Tallis, this is a quite detailed map of the region, showing main habitations, rivers, and mountains by hachure, surrounded by vignettes, including the Fortress and Palace of Dalai Lama, Lassa and the Chinese Wall - and a Mongolian Noble on camelback.

 

£120.00 Unmounted/unframed.
