County Maps of Wales and the Marches
For each county, Tallis included a detailed colour-tinted map, to a scale of approximately 1 inch = 6 miles (about 1 : 380,000). The maps, which include towns, villages, railway lines, canals, and roadways, were probably produced circa 1850 from earlier surveys by the Ordnance Survey. They were drawn and engraved by J. Archer of Pentonville, London.
