This third instalment in the Dublin atlas series from the 'Irish Historic Towns Atlas' traces the history and development of Dublin through the late 18th and early 19th centuries.

In this period, many of the city's modern streets were laid out. A collection of 30 loose sheets present a variety of maps and views illustrating Dublin. Large-scale colour maps depict the city (within the canals) in 1847 at two different scales, which can be compared with a modern town plan of 2012. Historical maps (and similarly illustrations and paintings), such those by Rocque, Scale, the Wide Street Commission and the Ordnance Survey are reproduced to high quality and in large format.

Thematic maps depict notable elements of the evolving urban landscape. Cultural and commercial life is opened up to the reader, with records of brewing and distilling, churches, city estates and economic growth phases. The maps are accompanied by a detailed text section with topographical information on Dublin's cityscape of factories, schools and shops at its core, and an introductory essay on the growth of Dublin from 1756 to 1847. CD-ROM included.
