The Scenery and Antiquities of Ireland.
Illustrated from Drawings by W. H. Bartlett. The literary portion of the work by N. P. Willis, and J. Stirling Coyne.
First published in 1842. Bartlett, one of the most prolific topographical artists of his day, had served an apprenticeship to the antiquary John Britton. During his heyday in the 1830s Bartlett travelled all over Europe, the Middle East, and North America, fulfilling commissions for drawings for travel books, most of which were published by George Virtue.
