  • Signature: Published by the Ordnance Survey Office, Southampton, under the direction of Colonel Sir Henry James, 1861
  • Extremely rare hand-coloured edition. In 1860 W. H. Hardinge discovered a cache of hand-drawn maps that had originally been ordered in 1609 by James I as part of a survey of Ireland. The then Director of the Ordnance Survey Office, Sir Henry James, arranged for the maps to be photographically reproduced using a process which he claimed to have patented, called photo zincography (in fact it was invented by two of his members of staff). By this method they were able to reproduce in facsimile the thirty-one double-page maps of the counties of Ireland. Also included in the volume are a double-page facsimile illustration of the siege of Enniskillen Castle drawn by soldier John Thomas in 1594, two additional smaller maps of Ireland by Lawrence Nowel, Dean of Lichfield, who died in 1576, and a twenty-one page facsimile of a manuscript by Nowel, the original of which is in the British Museum. Large folio in full calf, blind stamped on upper and lower boards, lettered in gilt at spine, and in a custom-made clamshell case. With a typescript note laid in, dated 30 September 1969 and addressed to the brethren of the Monkstown Clerical Society, concerning a subscription to raise funds for a presentation to their President to mark the twenty-fifth anniversary of his ordination, suggesting that this volume was the outcome of that subscription. A rare publication in the black and white, and all the more exceptional in colour.

  • Comic postcards, all hand drawn by Victor Price and sent to his wife and children in Dun Laoghaire and later Glenageary during the years 1923-1949. Price worked as a land valuer for the Valuation Office in Dublin and travelled the length and breadth of Ireland in the course of his work. Whilst he travelled he frequently sketched, exhibiting the fruit of these efforts from time to time with the WCSI (1928-39) and the Dublin Sketching Club. His postcards home refer mostly to sights encountered during his travels, illustrated with humorous sketches featuring a little dog. Seventy-nine cards in total, accompanied by a lineage of the Price family.
