A Topographical Index to the Parishes Townlands of Ireland. In Sir William Petty’s Mss. Barony Maps (c. 1655-9) (Bibliotheque nationale de Paris, fonds anglais, nos. 1 & 2) and Hiberniae Delineato. Dublin: Manuscripts Commission, 1932. Pp, [xx], 379. Maroon cloth boards, title lettered in gilt to spine. A very good copy.

Information gleaned from Petty’s manuscript maps, some 214 in all containing over 25,000 placenames. Mostly names of townlands which are a great source of toponomastical information, until now left untapped.

The following critical study and description of the maps was published by Y.M. Goblet: “La transformation de la geographie politique de l’Irlande au XVIIeme siecle dans les cartes … de Sir William Petty,” and “Les noms de lieux irlandais dans l’oeuvre de Sir William Petty,” 1930
