Tallis - London and its environs
Colour: Hand Colour
Size: 28 x 21 inches
Title: Tallis's Illustrated Plan of London and its Environs..
An impressive large format work, perhaps the most decorative of all of Tallis' City Plans. Engraved for R. Montgomery Martin's Illustrated Atlas.
Tallis was one of the last great decorative map makers. His maps are prized for the wonderful vignettes of indigenous scenes, here the buildings of London.
The town plans engraved by Tallis appear in only a small percentage of his works, making them harder to obtain than his regional maps and the larger format town plans are rarer still.
In good condition with reinforcing tape on the folds of the verso, minor toning and a few marks. Rare.
