You didn't lose me, I'm just not able to work 24/7 (as much as that would help my wallet!) I'm rarely here on weekends when the kids are home. Reviewing this right now.

This is a vintage pictorial map of Ireland, printed by John Bartholomew & Son between 1966 and 1969, measuring 36.5" x 24". The map is rich with decorative embellishments throughout as it notes cathedrals, abbeys, castles, battles & sieges, massacres, sea ports, towns, main roads, ancient clans and families. Several quotes and Irish proverbs can be found in scrolls within the map. Surrounding the map are numerous coats-of-arms representing cities and universities.

This was done by Leslike Bullock, a notable mapmaker. Here's an article about him.

The current retail value is $40.00.
