SKU: tallfm/belg/002

A highly decorative and detailed mid 19th century map of Belgium which was drawn and engraved by J. Rapkin (vignettes by J. Marchant and J. B. Allen) 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 'Belgium' map was typical of the many fine ones which appeared in this work with its decorative border and attractive vignettes. Illustrated are views of Antwerp Cathedral, the altar of St. Gudule and the battle monuments on the plains of Waterloo.
