TALLIS, John.

Origin: London, John Tallis & Company, 1851.

A fine steel engraving of the Crystal Palace designed by Joseph Paxton to house the Great Exhibition of 1851. Originally erected in Hyde Park, it was 1851 feet long, it was later dismantled and rebuilt in Sydenham in South London. The structure was destroyed by fire on 30th November 1936. 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.

Condition: Uncoloured; light soiling and minor staining to margins, otherwise a good example.

Size: 190 x 260mm (7½ x 10¼ inches).
