About this objectDepicted is text and discussion on Lallah Rookh, by poet Thomas Moore. “She found that her short dream of happiness was over, and she had nothing but the recollection of its few blissful hours.”
John Tallis & Co. Publ. John Tallis and Co. was a successful Publishing Company in England, Australia, and America from 1835-1860. The Company was originally a father and son establishment. The son was named for his father and when the senior partner tragically passed in 1842, the second John was left as proprietor. The entrepreneurial son found a niche market in cartography (map making) and established a reputation for quality maps. Though, John Tallis & Co. was best known for cartography—their arsenal of engravers also created steel engravings of literary figures in portrait.
