Moll’s Map of Ireland London, H. Moll, etc., 1714
Cartographer, engraver and publisher, Hermann Moll’s origins are thought to be either German or Dutch. He came to London circa 1698 and soon acquired a reputation for his finely detailed and accurate map-making skills. His published maps cover almost all corners of the globe, including parts of Africa, Asia and most particularly the Americas, North and South. This map of Ireland dates from 1714. The map includes annotations around the edges with information on the army barracks of Ireland and small maps of such notable sights as the Giant’s Causeway and St Patrick’s Purgatory and a number of towns, including Cork, Limerick and Dublin.
