TALLIS, John.

Origin: London, John Tallis & Co., 1851.

A superbly detailed steel engraved plan of the city of Dublin, vignettes include; the Custom House, Nelson's Column, Four Courts, King's Bridge and St.Patrick's. Extends out as far as Portobello Barracks in the south, Ringsend in the east, Whitworth Hospital in the north and Richmond Barracks in the west. John Tallis is without question one of the most renowned cartographers and publisher of the C19th. His maps are the last of the lavishly decorated and ornamental maps, considered to be works of art as well as geographically accurate. He was born in Stourbridge in Worcestershire in about 1818 and it is likely that he stayed in the Midlands working as a publisher in Birmingham, until he moved to London in the early 1840′s.
