Description

A fine reproduction map of Brazil. Illustrated around the margins, with beautiful vignettes of animals, structures, and people. The map was drawn and engraved by John Rapkin. Tallis maps were known for their accurate designs and numerous place names and geographical details, as well as for the use of shaded areas to indicate topographical features. The fine craftsmanship of the map can be seen in the colour illustrations in the four corners showing “Boats on the Rio Negro” (upper left), “St.Catarina” (upper right), “Monte Video” and “Cape St.Antonio, Bahia” (lower left), and “Rio de Janeiro” (lower right). Published in the famous “Tallis’s Illustrated Atlas and Modern History of the World, Geographical, Political, Commercial and Statistical”.
