Beautiful detailed map of Ireland in old colors by Jansson.

The map presents Ireland in extreme detail and extends eastward to include parts of Scotland, England and Wales. The map is embellished with a decorative title cartouche featuring the Irish harp, a large coat of arms and a mile scale. It is also decorated with ships and a sea monster on the ocean.

This example appeared in the first volume of the French edition of the Atlas Novus, Nouveau Théâtre du Monde 1644-47 printed by Jan Jansson in Amsterdam. Jansson's signature is engraved in the lower left corner.
