Description

A fine reproduction map of Asia.

A decorative and finely executed mid-19th-century map of Asia which was drawn and engraved by John Rapkin (vignettes by J. Marchant and J. B. Allen) and published in John Tallis & co.’s The Illustrated Atlas (London & New York, c.1851). The Asia map was typical of the many fine ones which appeared in this work with its ornamental border and attractive vignettes. Illustrated are views of the architectural city of Petra, Tartars on horseback, Russian peasants, walruses and various ‘sun-birds of India and the Phillippine Isles’.
