An attractive antique map of Ireland by Robert Morden.
The map appeared in an early edition of Camden's Britannia, one of the most enduring works on Britain published in the 17th and 18th Centuries. Includes towns, roads, mountains, rivers, churches, lakes, and a host of other details.
Robert Morden (d. 1703) was a British map and globe maker. Little is known about his early life, although he was most likely apprenticed to Joseph Moxon. By 1671, Morden was working from the sign of the Atlas on Cornhill, the same address out of which Moxon had previously worked. Most famous for his English county maps, his geography texts, and his wall maps, Morden entered into many partnerships during his career, usually to finance larger publishing projects.
