Regular price €60.00
John Rocque’s Exact survey of Dublin, published in London in 1756, provides a vivid snapshot of the city at this period. It shows ‘all publick buildings, private dwelling houses, ware houses, stables, courts, yards, &c.’. Rocque was the son of Huguenot émigrés, who were exiled from France and moved to England in 1709. As well as being a surveyor and mapmaker, he was also an engraver and map-maker of international standing.
This is a set of 4 reproduction maps (unframed), in A2 size.
