John Tallis and Company was an English map company which published views, maps and atlases in London from 1838 to 1851. Known for his ornamentation and small decorative vignettes, Tallis was one of the last mapmakers to make maps with scenes. His vignettes included people, nature, animals and views of the countryside. His "General Atlas" published in 1851 was the last of the decorative style of maps from England. John Tallis lived in New Cross, South East London. Many of Tallis maps were engraved by John Rapkin (1835-1865) and most of the maps had limited color including outlined boundaries and some land features.
