Europe, Ireland and Germany, ca. 19th century CE. A collection of printed materials: two printed German maps, one print of an older engraved map, and two prints of engravings depicting scenes of ruins in Ireland.

The third map is historical, showing the island of Sicily and the city of Carthage from the time of the Romans. The two prints of woodcuts show scenes made by Daniel Charles Grose (d. 1838), who from 1791 onward created a series of drawings on the "Antiquities of Ireland". They are: "Castle Dermots Abbey, Co. Kildare" and "Church and Tower at Castledermot, Co. Kildare." Size of largest with mat: 21" W x 17.5" H (53.3 cm x 44.4 cm)
