Cloth-backed medium size version of A New Map of Ireland originally published by William Faden around 1797 and dedicated to “His Majesty King George the Third, The Patron and Promoter of every useful science”. Counties are in different colours, with the divisions into Ulster, Connaught, Leinster and Munster also marked. A pretty vignette of a rural scene with cupids decorates the title.

This reproduction was taken from what used to be called a “cloth-dissected” map, made when the map itself was cut into sections and each section then individually pasted onto an overall cloth backing for the whole map. In this version the whole map is backed onto cloth in one piece but the gaps between the sections have been reproduced in the printing to preserve the style and the feeling of the original. Each individual map is presented folded in a colourful case covered with a unique design marbled paper – no two cases are identical.

PLEASE NOTE: this title is also available in a smaller size reproduction. To see the list of all the titles in this series from the Old Folding Maps please click on the series link.
