This densely engraved map of Ireland is divided into the four provinces and shows towns, roads, forests, and political divisions. The decorative cartouche features the title on a rock cliff near the sea with galleons in the background and Hibernia with her harp in the foreground. Weigel based his map off of Herman Moll's, who is credited in the title. Engraved by Michael Kauffer.
