Title : [Two maps] Hiberniae pars Australis. . ..
Map maker : MERCATOR, G. / JANSSONIUS, J..
Date : Amsterdam, 1642.
Size : 24.6 x 18.4 inches. / 62.6 x 46.8 cm.
Colouring : In original colours.

Description :Fine two sheet map of Ireland, with impressive topographical information, with several keys. Prepared by Mercator, published by Janssonius / Hondius.

Mercator's two-sheet map of Ireland was first published just after his death in 1595 and over the decades it was altered considerably by cartographers. For instance the original strapwork cartouche on the map of the southern half of Ireland was replaced with a new title and the hatchuring that filled the seas has been flattened (although it is still visible in places) and the ships and sea-monster on the northern sheet have removed.
No attempt was made to actually update the cartography but these changes were seen to improve the appearance of and modernize maps.

Condition : Paper minor age toned and lightly stained, more in the margins. Repair of split lower part center fold.


ID: 08341
