 A Map of the Island of Ireland in two Sections, East & West. [1837]. Handcoloured boundaries of provinces and counties. Identifying all major towns, rail lines, post roads, rivers, canals, nautical routes and some undersea formations. Engraved vignettes of the Giant's Causeway, a lake and mountain landscape, a round tower etc. Disarticulated and mounted on linen for folding.  A very good clean example, the colouring bright and cartouches in sharp condition. The two sections fold into it's original leather & cardboard slipcase which is somewhat scuffed and worn.  An extremely detailed map of Ireland, it includes the new Dublin to Kingstown and proposed Dublin to Drogheda railway. The production of the map was not without incident, Wyld claimed to have purchased the copyright from the O. S. which they disputed and it went so far that they considered taking action against Wyld, but while the O. S. were preparing their case, the Crown lawyers advised them that it would be impossible to find a jury capable of understanding the law of copyright, and so the case was withdrawn. [ABL 345(1)].   (185.42 x 73.66cm)
