Matching pair of maps with Latin text on verso.

A. Ultonia Oriental. Charming map of Northern Ireland including Belfast and extending south to Drogheda. Decorated with a large strapwork title cartouche, a sailing ship and a sea monster.

B. Udrone. Laghlyn is near the center of this small map. It is an excellent early portrayal of the Carlow region in Leinster province, showing cities, towns, rivers and mountains. The title and distance scales are included in the strapwork cartouche.
