Handmade to order
This is one of the finest old, colour maps of Ireland. Originally titled A General Map of Ireland, created for the Railway Commissioners in 1837 by RJ Griffith, this is a wonderfully detailed map of the entire island with the geological (rock) and palaeontological (fossils) features hand coloured.
Because of the amount of detail in this map, the smallest version we can print is 100cm wide (39in) by 120cm tall (47in). If you would like a larger version of this map, or you'd like me to customise its shape slightly to fit a different space, please get in touch and discuss your requirements with me.
I can also frame this map for you. It would make a fantastic statement piece - if you (or someone you know) has a large enough wall for it! Please contact me if you'd like a framed version of this map.
Every major county, town and city is visible on this map, as are a lot of smaller villages. If you've ever wondered about the geological strata below Cork, Dublin, Belfast or Limerick, this is the map for you!
As you'd expect, you can also see the entire railway system of Ireland on this map.
Many little visualisations adorn the edges of the map, providing detailed analyses of the geological structures of certain parts of Ireland. For example, the top right visualisation shows the 'relative positions of the Mesozoic, Cenozoic and basaltic formations' of Murnells Rocks.
I also have a large, old geological map of France in 1840: https://uniquemaps.co.uk/products/large-old-geological-map-of-france-1840-by-andre-brochant-de-villiers-vintage-map-antique-map-geology-map-framed-or-unframed

If you are not happy with your unique map for any reason, contact me for a no-quibble refund.
I am very confident you will like your old map. I have been doing this since 1984 and I'm a 5-star Etsy seller with 1000s of sales and reviews.
This is the cheapest place to buy my maps online.
I use a unique process to restore my maps that is massively time consuming and labour intensive. Hunting down the original maps can take months. I use state of the art and eye-wateringly expensive technology to scan and restore the maps. As a result, I guarantee my maps are a cut above the rest - that's why I can offer a no-quibble refund.
Almost all of my maps look amazing at large sizes (200cm, 6.5ft+) and I can frame and deliver them to you as well, via special oversized courier. Contact me to discuss your specific needs.
