Discover the history of Ireland through maps

From early maps of the Emerald Isle to modern day, Ireland has evolved rapidly – along with the ways in which it has been mapped. Cartography has not only kept pace with these changes, but has often driven them. Explore Ireland’s fascinating history with this stunning volume of over 100 maps.

Combining the artistic world of early cartography with modern computerised surveys, this is a beautiful and unique addition to any map- or history-lover’s collection. Irish author and historian Pat Liddy produces an invaluable history of Ireland and its relationship with its neighbours, and indeed, the world.
