This is a beautiful 1860 elephant folio map of the British Isles or Great Britain and Ireland by A. H. Dufour. It includes England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland and covers from the Shetland Islands to the English Channel. Throughout, the map identifies various cities, towns, rivers and an assortment of additional topographical details. As this map was being printed, the Kingdom of Great Britain and the Kingdom of Ireland had already amalgamated into a single political entity. England and Scotland were in the midst of the Industrial Revolution. Though England and Scotland flourished throughout the 19th century, Ireland suffered a series of famines, the worst being the Great Irish Famine, which lasted from 1845 – 1849 and killed about a million people. This map was prepared by Auguste-Henri Dufour and engraved by Charles Dyonette for publication plate no. 18 in Armand Le Chevalier's 1860 edition of Atlas Universel, Physique, Historique et Politique de Geographie Ancienne et Moderne.
