Very lovely, decorative map of Ireland oriented with north to the right. The map notes the four provinces of Leinster, Munster, Ulster and Connacht, as well as many counties, cities and towns, including Dublyn. The sea is stipple-engraved, features Mercator's distinctive calligraphy, and the map is topped with a decorative, banner-style cartouche. It is from a Latin edition published between 1613 and 1630. Latin text on verso.
