THE ENGRAVED COPPER PLATES
WILLIAM COLLING HOBSON'S
NEW MAP OF IRELAND,
This Map, comprsing SIX LARGE SHEETS, is undoubtedly the grandest and most important undertaking illustrative of the Topography of Ireland that has ever been conceived, and in point of beauty of engraving, never surpassed. So minuite, indeed, is the delineation of the various Counties, that the residences of the Nobility and Gentry are most accurately given.
Upwards of 2500l. have been expended upon the work, and it is presumed that an outlay of fifty pounds more upon the Engraving will complete it.
Such has been the opinion of the Work, that above Three Thousand Subscribers' names have already been obtained.
