A very attractive and interesting 19th century map of Ireland which was printed by J. Bartholomew and published in Black’s General Atlas of the World (Edinburgh: A. & C. Black, 1864). An interesting feature of the map is the extensive railway network system which had been established in Ireland by that time.

The company became a sudsidary of HarperCollins in 1989.
