Dublin, part I, to 1610
Number 11 in the Irish Historic Towns Atlas series, Dublin, part I, to 1610 is the first in a series of four parts relating to Irish cities. Its breadth of material is underpinned by a topographical information section that lists historical and archaeological details of over 1,300 sites and an essay tracing the development of the city to 1610. The rich body of maps collected here includes: a large composite medieval map illustrating Dublin in c. 840-c. 1540; a map depicting the growth of the city to 1610; John Speed's map of Dublin (1610); maps of Dublin Castle (1606), Christ Church Cathedral (1764) and St Patrick's Cathedral (1754); a reconstruction of the city in 1846-7 and a facsimile of the municipal boundary map (1837) showing some medieval features in a nineteenth-century context. Added to this trove are two Ordnance Survey maps showing Dublin in its surroundings and the modern city; a bird’s eye view of medieval Dublin; and photographs of the Wood Quay and Winetavern Street excavations from the 1970s giving a flavour of Dublin's archaeological landscape; and a modern aerial view.
