"Russia in Europe"

Published by John Tallis, 1851

Printed by Lahaina Printsellers, Ltd., 2016

This superb reproduction of the original hand-colored steel plate engraving, "Russia in Europe", 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 exquisite vignettes including Polish Captives on Their Way to Siberia, Travelling Sledge, Russian Bear, and Napoleon's Flight from Moscow. The chief founders of the empire are considered the Sclavonians and the Scandinavians who established Novgorod and Kiev. Further territories were acquired by the Czars Ivan and Peter the Great and Empress Catherine.

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.
