Hibernia : N. J. Visscher

click here to view a large version in a separate window

A very rare and attractive miniature map of Ireland, oriented with north to the right, probably engraved by Petrus Kaerius, about 1598 and re-issued in a little-known edition by Visscher 50 years later. This plate was published in 1649 when it was included in "Tabularum Geographicarum Contractarum" a compilation of maps mainly engraved at the turn of the century but including some old, but previously unpublished plates. Now very rare, the atlas is known complete in only a small handful of copies, perhaps only two, the individual maps are very scarce. This is a fine example of a distinctively engraved little map bearing the lettering "a.7" distinguishing it from earlier examples.
