Irish Historic Towns Atlas No. 12
The Irish Historic Towns Atlas records the topographical development of a representative selection of Irish towns and cities. Each atlas focuses on a particular town or city and comprises a variety of maps, an essay explaining historical development, and a body of classified topographical information covering the urban area as a whole and its component parts. This atlas, Belfast: Part I, to 1840, includes historical details of over 2,700 sites and a range of large-format maps, reconstructions and views. All trace the growth of Belfast from its origins as a strategic site, through the 17th-century planned town, to a 19th-century industrial city.
