Early Irish maps from State Papers c.1558 -c.1610
These maps come from the ‘State Papers Ireland’, the main record of government business in the early modern period. The maps were originally bound with papers in a specific map series, SP 64, which runs parallel to the main series of State Papers Ireland in SP 63, among which maps can also be found. These maps have been extracted from SP 64, and now bear the map extract references MPF 1/35 to MPF 1/102.
