DENMARK

 By John Rapkin.

Drawn & engraved by John Rapkin and published London circa 1850 by J&F.Tallis.

An interesting and desirable map of Denmark illustrated with vignette engravings of Copenhagen, Sleswig, Elsinore, horses, figures in traditional costume and a coat of arms. Original hand colouring.

 Fine condition other than some very light browning to the original centre fold.

Approx. 12.5" x 9.5" (320mm x 240mm) including the borders, with margins beyond. Would frame up beautifully.

Please see also close up image. 


John Rapkin was a mapmaker who was as concerned with the aesthetic value of his work as well as cartographic content.  His fine maps are distinguished by the trademark decorative borders, vignettes and title displays. Rapkin worked in close association with the equally respected publisher John Tallis. The publishing rights of many of the maps passed to The London Printing and Publishing Company circa 1850.
