Eryn. Hiberniae Britannicae Insulae, Nova Descriptio. Irlandt. Antwerp: Plantin, 1598, Dutch edition. Original colour. 360 x 485mm. Restoration at centre fold.
A classic collector's map of Ireland published in the 'Theatrum Orbis Terrarum', regarded as the first modern atlas.

These black borders are uncommon because of the amount of work needed to create black areas by engraving lines.

They are usually attributed to Parker because the map of England has his signature. BONAR LAW: 53.
