Title : The Illustrated Atlas and Modern History of the World..
Map maker : TALLIS, J..
Date : London, New York, 1851.
Size : 14.6 x 11.0 inches. / 37.1 x 28.0 cm.
Colouring : In original o/l colours.

Description :This scarce and very desirable folio atlas is one of the last "decorative type" atlases to be published. Sometimes called the "Tallis Atlas", this complete example contains 81 maps, 2 charts, a frontispiece view of The Great Exhibition of the Industry of all Nations and related text pages interspersed throughout.

Each of the steel plate engraved maps feature at least one engraved vignette, many with two or more, and help to make this a truly beautiful atlas.
The Mexico, California and Texas map is the Gold Rush version with the added vignette titled "Gold Washing" and the gold region of California identified with yellow color along the Rivers Sacramento and San Joaquin. The Victoria, or Port Phillip map also shows "The Gold Diggings" areas highlighted in yellow.

This edition has a total of seven maps of Australia, Tasmania and New Zealand. Hardbound in original brown half calf with cloth boards embossed with a gilt globe and title on spine. Sheets are all edges gilt.
Edited by Robert Montgomery Martin, engravings by J. Rapkin.

Additional shipping costs apply : Australia - $25, Europe: $75, USA: $70

Condition : The maps are in original outline colour and the vignettes and borders are uncoloured, as issued. Maps are mostly fine to very good with just a few good due to small stain or light foxing. Frontispiece shows some foxing and there is some light staining of the end papers.
All pages are evenly and pleasantly ivory age toned. Covers show typical wear with rubbing and wear to cloth.
The hinge is starting and the front cover partially detached.
