This decorative map details the southwestern Irish province of Munster. Munster is the largest of the four provinces, with the counties of Limerick, Waterford, Cork, Clare and more. Many places are named including Tipperary, Bantry Bay and the Dingle Peninsula. The sea is decorated with ships, a sea monster, and a compass rose. A drape-style cartouche and a strapwork cartouche fill the top corners of the map. French text on verso, published between 1646-49.
