MAP OF IRELAND / J. DOWER / Hand Coloured Steel Engraving / Drawn and Engraved by John James Dower / Published by Orr & Co. London 1853 From ‘A Descriptive Atlas of Physical and Political Geography’
John Dower (1825 - 1901) was a prolific cartographer (engraver of maps) based in Fleet Street and Pentonville, London. This exquisite and detailed map of Ireland has on its lower base a section of mountain ranges along the 'line AB'. Purchased in Tasmania and framed with true vue glass it is hard to believe this was printed 166 years ago.
