From the first systematic "modern" atlas this is a striking and attractive map of Ireland, shown with north to the right. The map is based on Mercator's 1564 wall map of the British Isles and appeared in Ortelius' atlas until 1603 when it was replaced by a map derived from Boazio. This particular example appeared in a Spanish text edition of the atlas. The title appears in a bold and decorative cartouche in the upper right hand corner and a ship sails the waters off the north coast. A good example of an iconic map of the country.
