Rare & Important Set of Stafford's Pacata
Pacata Hibernia deals with the Elizabethan wars in Ireland. It was fought between the forces of Gaelic Irish chieftains Hugh O'Neill, Hugh O'Donnell and their allies, against the Elizabethan government of Ireland. The war was fought in all parts of the country, but primarily in Ulster. It ultimatley ended in defeat for the Irish chieftains, and led eventually to their exile in the Flight of the Earls and to the Plantation of Ulster.
Most of the maps and plans in this publication are of the campaigns in Munster during that turbulent period.
This set is a most important record of that period, and is a direct copy of the first edition which was first published in London in 1633. All the maps and plans have been faithfully reproduced in facsimile, and are in good order. There is selective foxing and browning on some of the pages and plates, but overall in very good to excellent condition.
