The Ordnance Survey’s large-scale town plans for Dublin (1847) are the focus of this book. Forty-five extracts from these richly detailed maps depict the streets, lanes, buildings, gardens, yards and parks of the city with precision, to the extent that individual houses (with numbers), pumps, lamp posts and trees are shown.

Author Frank Cullen considers selected features and areas of the mid-nineteenth-century city through the map extracts, using other sources to discuss the elements of urban life that lie behind maps. The maps extracts and commentaries are accompanied by contemporary illustrations; these are preceded by an introductory essay on Dublin in 1847.

Irish Historic Towns Atlas is a research project of the Royal Irish Academy, which traces the development of Irish towns and cities by studying historical sources and maps and publishing the results in its series of fascicles (26 produced to date), bound volumes and ancillary productions.
