An attractive example of an early map of the whole of Ireland. William Camden's important account of the history and topography of Britain was first issued in 1586 but lacked any maps. For a new edition, of 1607, the engravers William Kip and William Hole produced a series of finely engraved county maps based on those of Christopher Saxton whose atlas of 1579 was the first to show the English and Welsh counties in detail. Saxton, however had grouped many counties together so this new series showed, for the first time, many populous and wealthy counties on their own. This finely engraved map shows Ireland with north to the left and was based on the Gerard Mercator prototype of a few years earlier. This new series is distinguished by elegant Tudor decoration with elaborate title cartouches, flamboyant script flourishes, the towns depicted according to size, hills in profile, forested areas, parks, and so on. Many of the coastal counties also featured ships and sea monsters. The series appeared in three editions, all now increasingly rare.
