[Plans of the principle Towns Forts and Harbours in Ireland.]
Engraved map. Sheet 395 x 520mm (15½ x 20½"). Fine impression with original binding folds, trimmed into printed border at top and bottom, losing title, as issued.
Plans of 16 Irish cities and towns: Drogheda, Dublin, Kilkenny, Waterford, Londonderry, Coleraine, Carrickfergus, Belfast, Kinsale, Cork, Duncannon, Charlemont Fort, Galway, Athlone and Limerick. The choice of towns refers to the actions of the Jacobite War in Ireland (1688-91): the plan of Drogheda shows the Battle of the Boyne (1690). Nicholas Tindal (1687-1774), at one time Chaplain to Greenwich Hospital, first published a translation of Frenchman Paul de Rapin's 'History of England' in 1727, running to thirteen volumes; in 1732 it was enlarged with his own notes and maps. This map was published in 'A summary of Mr Rapin de Thoyras's History of England, and Mr Tindal's Continuation, from the Invasion of Julius Caesar, to the End of the Reign of King George I. Illustrated With Medals, Plans of Battles, Towns, and Sieges', 1751.
