Full Description

Steel engraving, 25 x 33.5 cm, original outline colour, trivial spotting, blank verso; engraved by John Rapkin for the ‘Illustrated Atlas’, with vignettes engraved by John Rogers after W. Bragg. This is ‘Great Game’ territory at a critical moment: first published in 1851 as ‘independent Tartary’, the map was revised to include ‘Russia in Asia’ as the independent khanates were annexed over the following twenty years.
