John Tallis.



ASIA


PUBLISHED: John Tallis and Company

London & New York. (c.1860)



Hand-coloured map in outline, with decorations of Walrus,

Tartars, Russian Peasants, Birds, and Petra, 330 x 250mm.,

map slightly soiled and a few brown spots but overall in

good condition.


John Tallis and Company


John Tallis and Company published views, maps and Atlases

in London from roughly 1838 to 1851. The principal works,

expanding upon the earlier works of Cary and Arrowsmith,

include an 1838 collection of London Street Views and the

1849 Illustrated Atlas of the World. His principle engraver

was John Rapkin, whose name and decorative vignettes

appear on most Tallis & Co. maps. Due to the decorative

style of Rapkin's work, many regard Tallis maps as the last

bastion of English decorative cartography in the 19th century.

Though most Tallis maps were originally issued uncolored,

it was not uncommon for 19th century libraries to commission

colorists to "complete" the atlas. The London Printing and

publishing Company of London and New York bought the

rights for many Tallis maps in 1850 and continued

Publishing his Illustrated Atlas of the World until the mid

1850s. Specific Tallis maps later appeared in innumerable

mid to late 19th century publications as illustrations and

appendices.

James Wyld.


MAP OF ASIA


PUBLISHED: London, J Wyld , Geographer to Her Majesty,

Charing Cross East. 1841



Large map 655 x 535mm, hand-coloured in outline with

patterned border, centre fold reinforced with tape, small

tears to margins buy not affecting map proper, very light

surface soiling, a large map of Asia in

good condition.




James Wyld was a noted geographer and map-seller.

He was the eldest son of James Wyld the Elder

(1790–1836) and Eliza (née Legg). In 1838, he married Anne,

the daughter of John Hester, and had two children, one of

whom, James John Cooper Wyld also became a map

publisher. On his father's death in 1836, Wyld became the

sole owner of the thriving family mapmaking business

based in Charing Cross. His maps, which covered regions

as diverse as London and the gold fields of California,

were regarded highly, and Wyld himself had an excellent

reputation as a mapmaker; he was elected as a fellow of

the Royal Geographical Society in 1839, and he was

appointed Geographer to Queen Victoria and Prince Albert

(as had been his father before him).
