"Northern India"

Published by John Tallis, 1851

Printed by Lahaina Printsellers, Ltd., 2016

This superb reproduction of the original hand-colored steel plate engraving, "Northern India", 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.

This map was printed seven years before the British Crown assumed the governing of India. Of particular interest are the exquisite vignettes of Tiger Hunt, Ruins of Old Delhi, the British Residency at Hyderabad and the Car of Juggernaut. A reference insert shows the outline colors used to distinguish the British Possessions, States under British Protection and Independent States.

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.
