A highly decorative and detailed mid 19th century map of Northern India which was drawn and engraved by J. Rapkin (vignettes by A. H. Wray & J. H. Kernot) and published in John Tallis’s Illustrated Atlas (London & New York: John Tallis & co, c.1851).
The Illustrated Atlas, published from 1849 to 1853, was the last decorative world atlas. The ‘Northern India’ map was typical of the many fine ones which appeared in this work with its decorative border and attractive vignettes. Illustrated are views of the British Residency in Hyderabad, the ruins of Old Delhi, a ‘Car of Juggernaut’, a tiger hunt and ‘Hindoos’ (an Indian man and woman).
