History and Description of the Crystal Palace 3 Volume Paperback Set History and Description of the Crystal Palace: Volume 3
In May 1851, the doors opened on the Great Exhibition, a celebration of British industry and international trade that spawned numerous imitations across the globe. The scale of the exhibition was immense and publishers responded quickly to the demand for catalogues, guidebooks and souvenir volumes. In a marketplace swamped with exhibition literature, Tallis' three-volume History and Description of the Crystal Palace, originally published in 1852 and reproduced here in the 1854 edition, quickly established itself as the definitive history for middle-class readers. Illustrated with high-quality steel-engraved plates of the most popular and eye-catching exhibits, Tallis' book provides a fascinating contemporary account of this cultural and commercial highlight of the Victorian age, and reveals the mind-set of a society at the peak of its imperial power. Volume 1 describes the preparations for the exhibition and focuses particularly on the 'foreign and colonial' departments and the decorative arts.

John Tallis Map of Aberdeen1851: 20 x 16 Photographic Print of Aberdeen
Aberdeen in Scotland nestled on the River Dee with its famous Victorian Park and Harbour, John Tallis's 1851 town plan perfectly captures this historic Scottish town during mid Victorian times. To the bottom right of the plan is a most attractive illustration of Aberdeen. At the top of the plan there is a view towards Castle Street. The other illustrations are of Old Don Bridge, North Church on King Street and a sailing ship on the German Ocean. London publisher John Tallis issued his Illustrated Atlas in 1850, consisting of eighty highly decorative maps of the countries and regions of the World, engraved on steel by John Rapkin. They are delicately engraved and are surrounded by charming vignette views depicting famous landmarks, wildlife and costume of the inhabitants of each country. By this time the accuracy and practicality of maps were generally considered of greater importance than were aesthetic qualities, therefore making them unusual for the period. Tallis did not produce a series of county maps, but his maps of the individual countries of the World are well worthy of note.Between 1850 and 1860, Tallis published an extremely attractive series of town and city plans, also engraved by Rapkin, with vignettes of scenes and buildings taken from Dugdales Curiosities .
