Jacob Sandrart's map of Ireland was published in composite atlases of the late seventeenth century and beyond. Ireland is shown in good detail with major roads depicted in addition to the usual physical features and nomenclature. The title appears in a decorative cartouche at upper left, a key is given at mid left, and the mileage scale is at lower left. Detail of Wales is also shown and an inset map shows the British Isles. A good, strong impression of a rare and unusual map.
