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
