An interesting townplan of Wexford, dated 1800, although actually published in 1802. From the 'Memoirs of the Different Rebellions in Ireland, From the Arrival of the English:' by Sir Richard Musgrave, otherwise known as Musgrave's Rebellions.
The book, printed in Dublin, bears the subtitle, 'Also a Particular detail of that Which broke out the XXIIID of May, MDCCXCVIII; With the History of the Conspiracy Which Preceded It'. Making the book an invaluable source on 1798.
This particular map also bears a reference to the houses destroyed by the rebels in June 1798, in Wexford Town.
A lovely map, in good condition and a nice memento of 1798. Not often found in colour.
