PARKER, Samuel. [A Scarce early 18th Century map of Ireland]
Ireland according to the latest Improveme.nts London: George Willdey, c.1710. 460 x 375mm.
An unusual map of Ireland, within an oval with a dark frame, with each corner containing three roundels of text. These black borders are uncommon because of the amount of work needed to create black areas by engraving lines. This is one of a series of separate-issue maps of European countries, with additional maps of the environs of London, Oxford & Cambridge. They are usually attributed to Parker because the map of England has his signature. BONAR LAW: 53.
