"Victoria, or Port Phillip"

Published by John Tallis, 1851

Printed by Lahaina Printsellers, Ltd., 2016

This superb reproduction of the original hand-colored steel plate engraving, "Victoria, or Port Phillip", was first published by the noted English cartographer, John Tallis, in his Illustrated Atlas and serves as a fine example of mid-19th century pictorial mapmaking. Generally considered to be the last of the great pictorial mapmakers, Tallis's maps are eagerly sought after by collectors.

Of particular interest here are the splendid vignettes of Melbourne and River Glenelg, Victoria. There are also images of natives and kangaroos as well as a specially-colored notation for the gold-diggings area. All are examples of the artistic quality no longer available in contemporary cartographical art.

We custom-print this facsimile map on waterproof canvas in our Lahaina studio using the finest archival inks, which are tested and guaranteed not to fade or shift under normal circumstances for over 100 years. Modern printing techniques allow us to improve and enhance the historical subject matter, even as we're careful to preserve and maintain its historical and artistic integrity.
