A spectacular map of Ireland based on Visscher's similar map. Filled with incredible topographical and political detail and embellished with two large cartouches featuring coats of arms and surrounded by putti, fishermen, and animals.
Superb original color, including the cartouches, which is very unusual for maps by Homann. Professional repairs of a couple of minor tears and fold separations including a tear just entering lower left border.
