Ceylon, 1855
  • Ceylon, 1855


    Map of Ceylon (Sri Lanka) done by John Tallis (circa 1855) - includes the signature vignettes that make Tallis's work so desirable.  This map has some conditional flaws - minor paper split on left hand side, as well as paper loss on corners.  Also, the piece was previously framed and has some minor acid burn from the matting.  Measures approximately 10 1/2 x 14 3/4.
