JOYCE, P.W. Philips’ Handy Atlas of the Counties of Ireland.


1 in stock

Constructed by John Bartholomew and revised by P.W. Joyce. With 33 coloured maps and consulting index. London: George Philip & Son, n.d. Crown octavo. pp. [iv], 33 (maps), 41 (consulting index), [4 (publisher’s list)]. Green linen over beveled boards, title in gilt on upper cover and spine. In very good condition. Scarce.

Depicted are the baronies in different colours, towns, villages, roads, railways, canals, mountains, rivers, lakes, bays, headlands and islands. With a detailed general description of Ireland by P.W. Joyce on the situation, size and population, surface, mountains, coastline and headlands, islands and peninsulas, rivers, lakes, bogs, minerals, climate, canals, ancient divisions, antiquities and legends of the early colonies. I am indebted to my friend, the late Maurice Craig who pointed out a typographical error in the index: Mount Bottom (County Waterford) should read Mount Bolton.
