A Paper Landscape is truly a classic of Irish historical writing. It is detailed, meticulously researched and (as far as this reviewer can tell) flawless. It is a book as much about the history of Ireland in the nineteenth century as it is about maps. The book should be read by everyone.’ Matthew Stout, Studia Hibernica.

‘For any of you interested in the story of Ordnance Survey in Ireland A Paper Landscape is essential reading.’ Leonard Hynes, Ordnance Survey Ireland.
