Handmade to order
This rare map of central Dublin was drawn by W.B. Clarke and published by Baldwin and Cradock Maps in 1834 for the Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge.
Yes, the SDUK was a real thing! They were founded in 1826 with the purpose of sharing affordable, useful information to those who chose to self-educate.
This map looks amazing at all sizes, from 12x16 inches (30x40cm) to 16x20 inches (40x50cm), 18x24 inches (45x60cm) and beyond to 24x36 inches (60x90cm). It looks particularly amazing at large sizes. I can print it at sizes up to 50 inches (130cm) wide.
The model in the listing images is holding the 24x18 inch (60x45cm) version of this map.
Please get in touch if you'd like a larger, framed or custom version of this map.
I also have this map but with original handcolouring from almost 200 years ago, which may better suit your aesthetic or room decor.
If you don't like this map, you might consider this John Rocque map of Dublin from 1756, which is probably the finest old map of Dublin ever made.
Like many old cities, you can see that central Dublin hasn't fundamentally changed in at least 150 years! All of the main streets and many landmarks are already visible here.
Across the bottom of the map are side aspect sketches of some of Dublin's main landmarks, including Four Courts, Bank of Ireland and the Wellington Testimonial.
The River Liffey wends its way through the middle of Dublin.
This map would make a lovely gift for anyone who lives in or who has Dublin close to their heart.
You can order the map itself, or you can order a framed version. The frame is a nice, simple black frame that really makes our maps pop out when on a wall. Please get in touch if you'd like a different frame. We use super-clear acrylic (perspex/acrylite) in our frames - it's less reflective than glass and better for transport.
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.

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.
