"South America"

Published by John Tallis, 1851

Printed by Lahaina Printsellers, Ltd., 2016

This superb reproduction of the original hand-colored steel plate engraving, "South America", 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 of the Condor and Llamas of Peru, Valparaiso, Descent of the Cordilleras, Natives of Chili, Rio Janeiro, Bazillian Bridge of Ropes and Gold Washing in Brazil. Each is an example of the artistic quality no longer seen 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.
