Eastern Hemisphere

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. Warren 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 Eastern Hemisphere of the world, showing in particular the postal route from London to Australia and the Far East. The elaborate surrounding vignettes display some of the flora, fauna and people of these regions.
