Antique map titled 'Islands in the Atlantic'. A highly decorative and detailed mid-19th century map of the Islands of the Atlantic -- including the Azores, Madeira, Bermuda, the Canary Islands and the Cape Verde Islands -- which was drawn and engraved by J. Rapkin (vignettes by H. Winkles) and published in John Tallis's Illustrated Atlas (London & New York: John Tallis & co, circa 1851).

The 'Islands in the Atlantic' map was typical of the many fine ones which appeared in this work with its decorative border and attractive vignettes. Illustrated are views of Fayal, Pico and Villa Franca in the Azores; the Chapel in the Rock of Vicente, Cape Verde Islands; Funchal, Madeira and Tenerife, The Canary Islands.
