Ireland.- Boate (Gerard) Irelands Naturall History. Being a true and ample description of its situation, greatness, shape, and nature... what diseases it is free from, or subject unto. Conducing the advancement of navigation, husbandry, and other profitable arts and trades, first edition, errata f. at end, browning, contemporary calf, spine ends chipped, upper joint cracked, [Wing B3372], 8vo, John Wright, 1652.

⁂ Scarce. "Boate describes natural resources plainly and systematically to produce a coherent regional geography... his aim was systematic description as a prelude to improvement by and for protestant settlers: consequently the natural features of the country are described with enthusiasm to interest new settlers, but the Irish are reproached for their failure to improve the land and for their unruliness and disorderliness" (ODNB).
